Challenging the often accepted view of the Ottomans as intellectually cut off from states to the west, this seminar presentation considers the similarities between Ottoman and western economic approaches. It examines in what ways and to what extent there was an exchange of economic knowledge and practice between the Ottoman empire and its western neighbours in the early modern era.
