Abstract

Scarcity of analyst and comparative history studies is striking in today's scientific work. On the other hand, it seems that the history of information salesmanship has become increasingly prominent and widespread. It is certain that new frameworks and perspectives are needed to come out of this narrow framework, to develop our understanding of history, and to facilitate the solution of social problems. For this purpose, we put it on the table the feasibility of applying the "new power equation" which we tried to develop in the study of history and in the solution of social events. Of course, we do not invent the "power equation" for the first time. It is also possible to see the power equation formulated in various formulas from other sources. However, the epistemology and knowledge patronage that we have presented are ignored in these power equations. However, a power equation based on epistemology and knowledge patronage is a development formula and strategic mind that our country needs for centuries. This equation will not only develop a new perspective, but it will also reveal how much the Islamic societies still misunderstand modernity in the past and the present. In the power equations having been applied so far, the ignorance of epistemology and the patronage of knowledge have caused the implementation of wrong development methods and the adoption of wrong strategies. From another angle, are the wrong power equations, an idea having been thrown into our minds and a perception management for centuries by the colonial powers? In the history, with the change of power and definition of power, although the elements of the power equation have changed, the uptrend of knowledge and nations that valued it has never changed. This study aims to to shed light on the failures of Ottoman modernization with this equation and to give a kind of equalization projector function. Also with the help of this equation, the deficiencies and failures of Ottoman modernization in the face of Japanese and Russian modernization will be tried to be explained briefly in terms of knowledge patronage. It is worth mentioning that this formula is not entirely a claim in solving matter of development and an absolute understanding of the power systems. Along with all the missing, It is an improvable formula. The power equation will provide a systematic and analytical look at history and events.
