North Korea's juche ideology: indigenous communism or traditional thought?

Research output

Abstract

This article examines the content of North Korea’s juche ideology by
analyzing official texts in comparison with Confucian classics and
new religious movements in South Korea. The comparison
revealed a series of similarities that vividly demonstrate that juche
ideas have absorbed core elements of Korean and East Asian
philosophical traditions.
