Confucian Tradition, Affective Network

|Formats||Hardcover Ebook (EPUB) Ebook (PDF)|
This book traces back the origins of Korean development from the cultural and moral dimension, and argues that the source of weakened autonomy and capacity of the state after the 1997 crisis also should be traced from the loss of fundamental ethos. It elucidates the positive effect of cultural inheritance that has been most blamed in the earlier studies as hampering economic growth and democratization of Korean society: Confucianism, affective networks, and state intervention. As such institutional characteristics have undeniably formed the historical path of Korean development, the future of Korean development cannot also be alienated from this path.
