Jongbok Yi, Associate Professor of Asian Philosophy
Associate Professor of Asian Philosophy
I was born in Seoul, Korea. I studied Ch’an or Zen Buddhist traditions in China and Korea, and also studied and practiced Daoism and Confucianism in Sungkyunkwan University. After attaining an M.A. degree for early Ch’an Buddhism at Seoul National University in 2000, while studying Indian and Tibetan Buddhism and Hinduism at the University of Virginia, I achieved an M.A. in 2005 and a Ph.D. degree in 2013. I am very interested in the intellectual history of the philosophy of the Middle Way (Madhyamaka, dbu ma) in India and Tibet. Currently, I am planning to collaborate with two Japanese scholars to publish a series of books on Tibetan understanding of Indian Middle Way School from 8th century C.E. to 15th century C.E.
I am also a tea drinker. Please stop by and tell me your story with a sip of tea.
