Takiyettin Mengusoglu was a Turkish philosopher. Mengusoglu was born in Malatya, Turkey. After finishing high school he went to Germany and became a student of Nicolai Hartmann. He was known as Takiyettin Temuralp at that time and published Über die grenzen der erkennbarkeit bei Husserl und Scheler in German. He is the author of the university level textbook Felsefeye Giris (Introduction to Philosophy). Mengüsoğlu founded a new school of anthropology which he called ontological anthropology. This anthropology deals with the man not through any conceptualization but through "his concrete bio-psychic wholeness". He believed that this new anthropology would be more suitable for approaching man and solving concrete problems in the human world. (Wikipedia).
