How I Can Apply What I Learn at Shishu-Kan

Students in the Graduate School of Advanced Studies in Human Survivability are not only expected to be fully competent in his or her field of specialty, but also required to complete a variety of multi-disciplinary subjects. It is a demanding program which requires a great sense of autonomy but rewarding at the same time. It is a great place for those who have a variety of experiences and are not afraid to think outside the box. In the last two months, it has been nothing but an inspiring experience being surrounded by highly motivated fellow students and faculties of diverse disciplinary backgrounds and being acquainted with prominent figures in the private sector as well as international organizations.

Research Topic

Through my undergraduate learning experience in the majors of sociology and economics as well as through various international corporate experiences in the private sector, I have come to be increasingly convinced that I should conduct research which concerns the fundamental value at the core of our cultural, political and economic activities to tackle diverse problems born out of rapid globalization. Thus, my thesis concerns the practice of public philosophy. My approach focuses on the practical engagement in pre-political contexts and with our normative ground that lurks behind the course of our decision making process, whether political and or economical, as a source of all deductive thought process.
