Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity

Academic integrity means a series of moral principles in an academic setting as the foundation for every aspect and all levels of education and academic research. In spite of all kinds of versions of definition, it is still very challenging to properly define due to the nature of human minds and the limitation of a language.

In this prospect, I will look at the academic integrity via mindfulness, Buddhist philosophy and neurophilosophy by associating the unconsciousness of human minds with the existing challenges in academic integrity. Along this line of perspective, it has to be pointed out that experiencing the academic integrity issue is very different from simply talking about it, that’s why I would like to combine my personal experience and mindfulness practice into this research to get some insight into the uncharted waters of academia, especially in an international context where multiple realities clash.

The project is still in its infancy and more content will arrive soon.

With mindfulness and philosophy, I relish thinking about the meaning of being and doing.
