Takiyettin Mengusoglu (1905–1984) was a Turkish philosopher.
Mengusoglu was born in Malatya province of Turkey. After finishing the high school he went to Germany and became a student of Nicolai Hartmann. He was known as Takiyettin Temuralp at that time and published Über die grenzen der erkennbarkeit bei Husserl und Scheler in German. He is the author of the university text book Felsefeye Giris (Introduction to Philosophy).
Mengüşoğlu founded a new school of anthropology which he called ontological anthropology. This anthropology deals with man not through any conceptualization but through "his concrete biopsyhichic wholeness". He believed that this new anthropology would be more suitable approaching man and solving concrete problems in the human world.
