From February 26 to 27, 02:00 P.M., a two-hour seminar on “Understanding Meta-ethics” was held at the LG-POSCO Business Hall. The seminar, targeting students majoring in Business Administration, was taught by guest professor Kang Cheul (School of Liberal Arts Education, University of Seoul)
Professor Bae Johngseok (Business Administration) started the seminar by introducing professor Kang and the purpose of his seminar. The seminar is a part of the program by management philosophy research department, allowing students to broaden their perspectives. Professor Kang clarified the concept of "being meta," which is to think beyond the concepts or thoughts related to relevant content from individual studies. Then, he specified the meaning of meta-ethics: thinking about the concept of morality and its existence.
Due to professor Bae’s suggestion to apply meta-ethics to participants’ own research, each participant gave a short speech on their results during the Q & A session. Professor Kang emphasized that if students do research or write a paper while possessing the “meta” mindset, the students might be able to delve deeper into their field of research, opening the bright possibility of meta-ethics.
