Abstract:   (876 Views)
Scientific policy-makings and type of relations of rulers with each other are effective in development and transfer of knowledge and culture. Ottoman government usually was in peace with Timurid. This led to scientific and cultural relationships between both territories ruled by these two emperorships. This paper is focused on the role of Mullā Alī Qūshjī in transferring knowledge of astronomy and mathematics from Samarqand School to Ottoman schools. It will be shown that how Qūshjī, after collapsing school and Samarqand observatory after the death of its founder, i.e. Ulugh Beg, transferred a huge volume of scientific information to Ottoman country, up to the pint that its impacts were seen even at early of era of European scientific revolution. Qūshjī’s effectiveness is not only noticeable in transferring knowledge of mathematics and astronomy, but also in forming new scientific schools in Ottoman territory. Also, we will see that how collapsing a scientific school causes development of new scientific schools in another territory
