Historically examined, there seems to be a significant connection between the personal characterictics of the leaders of societies and the structure of education-instruction institutions under their control. If we divide the leaders into two categories those who had a special interest in scientific activities and those who had no special interest in scientific activities, we can observe that people had a rising interest in.education, art and science due to the reforms made in education instruction institutions in the periods in which societies were governed by those leaders who had a special interest in scientific activities. In this study I argue that why Turkish leaders had a special interest in scientific activities in their times is closely connected with the conception of "being a wise person" which were deeply rooted and originated in Turkish tradition.
