Revisiting the Content for Week 1

In this video, we will revisit the content for week 1.

This is the end of this week.

We have gone from the term “philosophy” of the ancient Greeks to the term “philosophies” as used in the modern day, describing other traditions of the world. Through this changing frame of thought, Korean philosophy has become one such philosophy among philosophies. Despite influence from Chinese philosophy and culture, pre-modern Koreans transformed them and made their own distinct way of thinking.

In the following weeks, we will start to explore Korean philosophy deeply. Have you enjoyed the first week of lessons? Please share your thoughts in the comments section. Hope you’re looking forward to what’s to come!
