World Religions: Confucianism
Dr. Hyo-Dong Lee, a native of South Korea with a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University, is an Associate Professor of Theology and Philosophy at Drew University. He will speak on Confucianism, one of the "world religions" or "global faiths" that originated in China and has deeply shaped the cultures of the East Asian and South East nations of Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, and Vietnam. It is found in many Asian diaspora communities in the Western world. This lecture will introduce the basic features of the tradition, including its core beliefs/ideas, history and rituals.
Professor Lee's research and teaching interests include comparative theology and comparative philosophy of religion with a focus on the dialogue between Christian/Western theological and philosophical and religious thought.
