Summary/Abstract: This paper deals with representative writings of an Ottoman intellectual, Shemseddin Sami Frashëri (1850–1904), who has simultaneously been represented in contemporary Turkey and Albania as one of the fathers of Turkish and Albanian nationalisms, respectively. Accordingly, he is known with two different names in these countries: „Sami Frashëri“ in Albania and „Şemseddin (or Şemsettin) Sami“ in Turkey. In order to avoid partisanship in this question, either his full name (as in the title) or the short version „Sami“ will be used in this paper.
