About this book

Korean elite/higher education has been affected by historic factors. The significant religious and philosophical elements influencing Korean elite/higher education have been Buddhism, Confucianism, Shinto-Confucianism, Christianity and Western thoughts. In particular, the traditional thoughts such as Buddhism and Confucianism have affected a spiritual side, whereas the grafted ideas such as Christianity and Western thoughts have contributed to a formal side. The characteristics of contemporary Korean higher education have maintained the hierarchically closed organizational structure and culture with formal authoritarian interaction patterns.
