Prof. Nevzat Tarhan is a scientist who has carried the results to his personal and social life, where he has transferred his knowledge of psychiatric expertise, which he has pursued over the years with great effort and with over 170 research articles, have been published in national and international refereed journals, more than 70 of which are index WoS journals, 70 books, and book chapters. Because of his works presented in visual and written media, he has reached an amount of one million audiences in Turkey. Some of his books have been translated into Bulgarian, Indonesian, Persian, Albanian, and Azerbaijani languages other than English.
Prof. Dr. Tarhan carries out his work with great seriousness and precision. The main factor underlying his diligence and success is his philosophy of life and his supramind (metacognitive, spiritual) perspective. His view of life, which is not limited to the world and covers both the world and after death, stems from the awareness that he is in the presence of his Creator while performing every work. This means that his beliefs based on research, observation, and proof are presented to the readers by taking science in the testimony of the Universe and by establishing the connection with the characteristics of Allah reflected in the Universe. He is one of the rare scientists who succeeded in explaining Religion and Science in a supportive way. In addition to succeeding in reducing the identity of the scientist to his life, he undertakes the duty of carrying, transferring the truths he learned to others.
The source of the foundations of this different perspective is the Quran, which has guided his life since his youth. Like young people who question the meaning and existence of life, he has questioned in his university years, “Incidental Existence, The Meaning of Life, Darwinism, Why there are Evil, The Need for Religion, The Psychology of Believing, Is there Life after Death?, How does one satisfy the Mind and Soul?”, and shared them with his readers by proving explanations from the Qur'an and proving them with scientific researches.
As Tarhan closely observes social life due to being a psychiatrist, he makes an accurate analysis of social life and touches on the importance of "Social Psychology" in every mass media platform.
Prof. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan, whose characteristics are not limited to what is written above, has always targeted investment in people and used his material-spiritual resources towards this direction. The majority of society also witnesses all of what he does. He expresses with his actions and deeds that he will maintain the same goals and beliefs until the end of his life.
He donated all of his income to the TARHAN - IDER Foundation, whilst his books have sold over 1 million copies. He speaks English and German. He is the father of two children. The family tree, dating back to 1400 years, was published in 2017 as a book.
Currently; he is executing the Founding Presidency of Uskudar University and by being the President of the Supreme Council of Management he is leading Turkey's first neuropsychiatry hospital NPISTANBUL Brain Hospital's Management Board Presidency duties.
