The chopstick, which is the tool with which over 1.8 billion people in East Asia – China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, and other South East Asian countries – eat their meals, embodies the qualities that make them successful: sharing, taking care of each other, offering food to the others, respect of elders, courtesy, manners, punctuality, coming clean to the table. This webinar provides philosophical insights into the constituent elements of the Chopstick Culture, a term coined by the speaker.
