Revisiting the Content for Week 2

In this video, we will revisit the content for week 2.

This is the end of this week.

This week, we have moved a step closer to Korean philosophy through two examples of Korean cultural innovations, Sungkyun and Hangeul.

They are good examples that show how Korean culture innovated from Chinese culture. In an adaptive and a disruptive way, Koreans adopted ideas, innovated them, and created new traditions for Korean culture. In the next week, we will examine the key ideas adopted from Neo-Confucianism, which, over a long period of adaptation, spawned intense debate unique to Korean philosophy.
