About this book
This book, a collection of the articles that the author has written over four years, examines Korean higher education from a predominantly Confucian perspective.
It introduces domestic and foreign readers to three domains of Korean higher education: educational thoughts in terms of the West and the East, religious thought and Confucian culture, and the Korean thirst for higher education: cultural sources, economic consequences, and reform. Although each domain explores a different aspect of the development and experience of higher education in Korea, the overall result is an illustration of the major educational thoughts and policies affecting Korean higher education. -- From the backcover
