Kursinhalt
In most Western cultures, personal identification is based on the individual, whereas in East Asia, the family registry system has been used to identify individuals. “Confucianism” is one of the common ethical values in East Asia. Confucian values place much emphasis on an individual’s moral obligation to family members. In this course, we will cover three themes. We will begin with identifying how Confucian moral and legal reasoning have evolved and the unique aspect of the role of apology in East Asia. The course also introduces the notion of Legal Orientalism and argues against the theory by presenting cases related to the advanced notion of anticipatory repudiation in China, a transfer pricing case in Japan, and Inter-Korea business law in Korea. Students and researchers interested in an introduction to East Asian societies, conflict resolution, negotiation studies, as well as contemporary legal cases in Japan, South Korea, and China are welcomed to join the course and discussions.
