Revisiting the content for Week 3

In this video, we will revisit the content for week 3.

This week, we have explored the characteristics of Korean philosophy, covering the two famous debates in the Korean intellectual traditions.

We began with a fundamental aspect of Korean philosophy, in that the emotion-reason binary was integrated in a single faculty, called the “mind-heart”. After that, we continued to examine moral emotions compared to our everyday feelings, and then we looked at the nature of morality in humans and in animals.

In the next week, we will learn what core aspects of Korean culture have influenced how it processes outside cultural influences, which I coined as the “Korean Matrix”.

Did you enjoy this week’s lessons? It was quite content-heavy this week, so I hope you’ll be able to ask questions and clarify with each other, or do some independent reading to learn more. Share your thoughts on this week below.
