Özet

In the 21st century, the world offers new philosophical ideas with new discussion platforms, which are technologically advanced visual fields. However, no study considers these modern products to be something that can be read with classical Islamic philosophy. As a postapocalyptic show, The Walking Dead presents a world full of zombies where humans are trying to rebuild their civilization. Therefore, we aim to study this adventure of civilization with the ideas of al-Farabi, who was one of the most important political philosophers in Islamic thought. This study's purpose is to compare The Walking Dead universe with al-Farabi's political philosophy to bring his ideas to the contemporary world. Thus, the study helps us learn al-Farabi's philosophical system and shows us how he can still be effective in the modern age. Hopefully, this study proves that this kind of research can adapt the ideas of past thinkers to the current age and creates a connection between past and future thinkers.
