Professor Jae-Kyu Lee's Memoir "Knowledge and Beyond"​
View : 5925 Date : 2015-03-24 Writer : ed_news

Professor Jae-Kyu Lee of KAIST’s College of Business has recently published a book called Knowledge and Beyond (available only in Korean). It deals with selected aspects of science and the world around us.

In Knowledge and Beyond, he expounds on his understanding of science, business, life, and religion. In part autobiographical, he describes his thirty-year career and his interaction with his past students who are now leading scientists and scholars in Korea, and offers some advice on how to better treasure life. Professor Lee also recounts his own life: his childhood, growing up and maturing with his mates, love at first sight of and his unconditional love towards his wife.

With respect to science, he talks about the origin of knowledge and ways to find solutions to questions that seem almost impossible to answer and offers a few aphorisms, such as: “studying is more like a marathon, not a boxing match;” “do not predict, but plan your future” and “learn by head in class, learn by heart in life.”

Knowledge and Beyond is a must read for those who have become exhausted by today’s competitive world, reminding readers of their life goals and paths.

Professor Lee said, “I wrote this book for the young to share the true meaning of life over plain knowledge. You can never find out the true meaning of life unless you combine simple and spiritual knowledge, and I hope this book helps in showing a way to achieve it.”

Professor Lee has taught at KAIST since 1985, and is currently the Dean of KAIST's Business College. He was formerly the Dean of KAIST College of Management, Director of KAIST EEWS (energy, environment, water, and sustainability) and the Vice Provost of the Singapore Management University’s School of Information Systems. He was also the President of The Korea Society of Management Information Systems and the President of Korea Intelligent Information System Society.
