Religious Factors Historically Affecting Premodern Korean Elite/Higher Education.
SNU Journal of Educatio Research v8 p31-63 Dec 1998
The purpose of this document is to analyze the historical influences of Confucianism and Buddhism on Korean culture and to explore the religions' impact on Korean higher education. Three questions comprised the research: 1) What are the characteristics of Buddhism and Confucianism in Korean cultural history? 2) How did Buddhism have an effect on monastic Buddhist schools? and 3) How did Confucianism affect the National Confucian Academy and the National civilian and military service exams in the Choson era? The research focuses on religious and intellectual history of pre-modern Korean higher education, and addresses these issues within the context of educational administration, using a literature-review approach as well as a discussion of the major religious elements of Korean cultural history.
