The Koreans: understanding a people and their culture through key words and language.

Koreans have a unique character and personality that sets them apart from all other Asians. And although Korean attitudes and behavior may be influenced by the modern world, the Korean mindset is still very much shaped by ancient culture and traditions. As is the case with all ancient cultures created within highly refined and meticulously structured social systems over thousands of years, one of the keys to understanding traditional Korean attitudes and behavior is the language of the people—or more precisely, key words in the language. These key words provide access to the Korean mind—to core concepts and emotions, the attitudes and feelings that make up the Korean psyche. These key terms reveal both the heart and soul of Koreans and provide bridges for communicating and interacting with Koreans on the most fundamental level.

In The Korean Mind, Boye Lafayette De Mente explores the meanings and cultural context of the most important "code words" of the Korean language, terms whose significance goes well beyond their literal definitions, providing an insight into Korean culture and the personality of the Korean people.

Keywords include:
  • Aboji, Ah-boh-jee — The "Father Culture"
  • Anae, Ah-negh — Wives: The Inside People
  • Han Yak, Hahn Yahk — The Herbal Way to Health
  • Innae, Een-nay — A Culture of Enduring
  • Katun Sosuy Pap, Kaht-unn Soh-suut Pahp — Eating from the Same Rice Bowl
  • And over 200 more…

2.0 von 5 Sternen Would Rather Have Borrowed The Book From A Library 4. Januar 2013
Von Jae - Veröffentlicht auf
There are a number of reasons why I didn't enjoy reading this book. First, many many many Korean words are spelled incorrectly, and it really does detract from the credibility of the author as an authority in this area. At least get the spellings right. Supposedly, going by the book's acknowledgments section, a number of people have had a chance to review the book for editing, yet, many of the most simple words are spelled in shall we say an unorthodox way. Second, the topics could have been covered in a systematic way. Talk about all things legal in one part, all things family in another part, and so on. There is no rhythm or rhyme to how this book organizes the topics, which is annoying. Third, the book is overly general and therefore some of its statements about the "unique character and personality" of Koreans seem unfounded and, quite frankly, bigoted. It is over 450 pages but due to how the topics are organized, many of the written material is needlessly repetitive. Some interesting history is mentioned, but this book could have been much better on a number of fronts.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Healing the Lack of Cross-Cultural Understanding 10. November 2012
Von Fern S. Welch - Veröffentlicht auf
I have been a dedicated fan of Boye Lafayette De Mente's books on the business practices, culture and languages of Korea, Japan and China since I read his first book on the Japanese way of doing business in the classic "Japanese Etiquette & Ethics in Business" in 1959. One of the key reasons for my loyalty is in knowing that the lack of cross-cultural understanding is one of the primary problems of humanity ... and knowing that the author's 70-plus books in this genre have helped millions of people around the world understand and relate to other cultures.

Thus, my pleasure in commending the author for his latest contribution "The Korean Mind," which I found invaluable in understanding the cultural factors that drive Koreans. This is a hugely important work. His insights indicate that the mindset of Koreans is still led by ancient cultural traditions. This information holds a key to understanding North Koreans, as regional conflicts and differences between North and South Korea have been the norm for millennia. It is also vital in knowing how to deal with Koreans in business and political matters, and especialy so since South Korea is one of the world's most important economic powers. Well done!

~Fern Stewart Welch, author of "Tea with Elisabeth;" "The Heart Knows the Way," and "You Can Live A Balanced Life In An Unbalanced World."

2.0 von 5 Sternen Informative but repetetive and with atrocious Korean spelling 2. November 2013
Von JOERG HANSEN - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I found this book fairly informative, ideally to be read one entry at a time every once in a while perhaps. It is way to repetitive and unstructured overall to be consumed in one go. In order to get an idea about some key Korean cultural concepts this is better than reading many of the convoluted academic works. As someone with a Korean studies background, the wrong spelling of even the simplest Korean words and phrases frustrated and disappointed me a lot. As other reviewers have remarked, this clearly undermines the author's (and contributors') credibility unnecessarily. If you can't write simple Korean can you actually read/speak Korean? And if not, how do you expect to understand Korea - and particularly the Korean Mind?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Good read 1. Juli 2013
Von D. Lieber - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was a good read. I got plenty of information on the Korean culture by reading it but was hoping for a more detailed description of culture and habits. Will have to find another book to keep the learning. Recommend this book if you want to get a good glimpse at the Korean culture in general.
