"Song-Chong Lee's book provides a deep, rich, and revealing set of reflections on Ham Sok Hon's ssial philosophy both as the foundation of his minjung theology and as a guiding inspiration for his pluralist-cosmopolitanism. This book discusses how Christianity is localized and then transformed in Ham's thought into a cosmopolitan philosophy, how deep appreciation of the force and meaning of life develops into a liberating political activism, and how spirituality can displace and eventually elevate normal politics in infinitely open-ended ways. This book is a must read for anyone who is interested in one fascinating instantiation of comparative philosophy and comparative political theory developed in Korea, by the most original indigenous thinker and political activist of the early twentieth-century. "--Sungmoon Kim, City University of Hong Kong
"Brilliantly navigating and unraveling the complexity of the highly metaphysical terms, ssial and saengmyeong, Song-Chong Lee adeptly locates a place of Ham Sok Hon's ssial philosophy in the larger theoretical spectrum of cosmopolitanism. Lee's creative interpretation of Ham's works and their applications to modern political issues and contexts show a bright future of the conversation between authentic, original Korean thoughts and Western philosophy."--Yohan Yoo, Seoul National University
