The title says it all. I looking into studying abroad in South Korea (I'm from Germany) in a year or so and I want to have at least a working knowledge of the philosophical workings of Asia and specifically of Korean philosophy. What would be a good starting point to familiarize myself with these philosophical viewpoints.

    I added an answer, but since the field is broad was there any specific school or period you had in mind? Commented Jul 5, 2012 at 0:46

Korean philosophy is very broad field and has been influenced by Buddhism and Noe-Confuciasm over the years, but I suspect as Wikipedia cites in the reference A Modern History of Korean Philosophy will give you a holistic picture.

I recommend the book Don't-Know Mind: The Spirit of Korean Zen (Amazon) parts of which I found thoroughly enlightening and searching related books in the aforecited ink will give you other options.

Hope it helped.
