Historical Development of Affective Networks in Korea: The Nongovernmental Sector and Confucian Tradition

  • Mi-Hye Chang


Society can be divided into three sectors: the “state,” which presupposes coercive power; the “market,” in which individuals seek profit; and “voluntary activities,” which rest on neither coercion nor profit. In this threefold model, the “nongovernmental” sector represents the third sector where voluntary activities go on (Hall, 1992). Studies on the nongovernmental sector emphasize its autonomy as a distinctive characteristic in comparison to the other two sectors (Wuthnow, 1991). The functions and roles of the nongovernmental sector and its historical development can be better understood when compared with two other sectors, the state and the market (Habermas, 1989).
