Suhyun Ahn is interested in Confucian philosophy, ranging from early Confucianism to contemporary Confucian revivalism. Suhyun is especially drawn to neo-Confucian metaphysics and epistemology and their implication on state paternalism. In his dissertation, Suhyun is planning to explore the dynamic between knowledge and action in Confucian thoughts and modern state ideology. In doing so, he hopes to consult 20th-century Chinese history, contemporary Chinese politics, and political and legal theory.
