Abstract :
In this article I briefly review of some of the most important publications of Mehmed Fuad Köprülü (1890-1966) and place them within the context of traditional Oriental studies in the West. I also attempt to show the extent to which his understanding of the practice of the discipline of Oriental studies might have conformed to Edward Said’s concept of Orientalism.

Dans cet article, je passe brièvement en revue certaines des publications les plus importantes de Mehmed Fuad Köprülü (1890-1966) et leur place dans le contexte des études orientales traditionnelles en Occident. Je tente également de montrer dans quelle mesure sa compréhension de la pratique de la discipline des études orientales aurait pu se conformer au concept d’orientalisme d’Edward Said.
