    A Comparison of Han Feizi and Xunzi’s Human Nature Theories: As Based on their Reward and Punishment System.Dan B. Jung - 2023 - THE JOURNAL OF ASIAN PHILOSOPHY IN KOREA 60:39-69.
    Xunzi is a Confucian scholar well known for his theory that no human nature is innately good. However, because it is in human nature to be greedy, it is possible to train the people through promise of reward and punishment. Xunzi has long been considered to have taught Han Feizi who has a similar notion of human nature and uses it as basis for his Legalist theories. In this paper, I compare the two philosophers based on their system of reward (...)

    Freedom and Self-Government: Ham Seok-heon’s Readings of Zhuangzi.Si-Cheon Kim - 2023 - THE JOURNAL OF ASIAN PHILOSOPHY IN KOREA 60:119-148.
    What does it mean to read Ham Seok-heon in the 21st century? Furthermore, what does it mean to read the ‘East-Asian Classics’ through him? In this article, I would like to raise a few issues that existing discussions on the relationship between Ham Seok-heon and the East-Asian Classics have not paid attention to, in order to point out the points that we should give more weight to in the hermeneutics of Ham Seok-heon’s ‘Chewing on Old Classics’. First, Ham’s should be (...)

  3. The Analysis of the ‘Theory of Inverse Numbers’ in the “Shuogua zhuan” and the Narrative Framework of Yichuan Yizhuan.Sung Su Kim - 2023 - THE JOURNAL OF ASIAN PHILOSOPHY IN KOREA 60:71-93.
    This paper analyzes the ‘Theory of Inverse Numbers’ that appears in Chapter 3 of the “Shuogua zhuan” 說卦傳 in the I Ching and seeks to apply the findings to the Yi studies of Cheng Yi. The Yi studies of Shao Yong, Zhu Xi, and Cheng Yi are generally explained in the categories of Xiangshu(Image-Number) Yi studies and Yili(Meaning-Principle) Yi studies. However, upon analyzing the ‘Theory of Inverse Numbers’ as a theory representing numbers of principles, it is evident that the framework (...)

  4. Jeong Eui-rim’s Theory of Liqi 理氣 and the Origin of Species’ Natures.WonSeok Lee - 2023 - THE JOURNAL OF ASIAN PHILOSOPHY IN KOREA 60:95-117.
    Ki Jeong-jin proposed a distinctive perspective in which the unified li 理 transforms into individual li by itself, and these individual li subsequently become the natures of distinct species. This viewpoint starkly contrasts with the Yulgok school’s theory, which posits that the unified principle differentiates through qi 氣. In response, Jeon Woo critiqued Ki Jeong-jin by adhering to the doctrines of the Yulgok school. According to him, a species’ nature is wholly attributed to the influence of qi. Ki Jeong-jin’s disciple, (...)

    A Review of Mencius’ Principle of the Four Occupations of the People. [REVIEW]DaeWon Suh - 2023 - THE JOURNAL OF ASIAN PHILOSOPHY IN KOREA 60:5-38.
    In the history of the world and the history of East Asia, there is a big difference in categorizing people. In the history of the world, for example, people are classified into ‘king-priest-commoner-slave’ or ‘king-commoner-labor’. In the history of East Asia, on the contrary, people are divided into four categories: scholar, farmer, artisan and merchant. This kind of classification started a very long time ago, and it is even stated in Shujing (Classic of Documents) and Guanzi (Book of Master Guan). (...)

    Disgust as seen through Lao-tzu’s Thought: Focusing on the Correlative Thinking of the Dao. 劉鐘榮 - 2023 - THE JOURNAL OF ASIAN PHILOSOPHY IN KOREA 59:245-279.
    The purpose of this study is to explore alternatives to disgust, which is a social problem today, based on Lao-tzu’s thought. Various discussions on how to approach the problem of hate have recently focused on legal aspects. However, in order to get to the root of the problem, we need a philosophical approach that can provide wisdom along with an understanding of the science of disgust. Among the various causes of hate, the process of generating and categorizing prejudice and discriminating (...)

    Implications of Virtue Ethics On Yulgok's Sincere Intention〔誠意〕. 崔普京 - 2023 - THE JOURNAL OF ASIAN PHILOSOPHY IN KOREA 59:87-114.
    The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that Yulgok's sincere intention〔誠意〕 implies the characteristics of virtue ethics. This paper aims to establish the meaningful discussion that Yulgok's sincere intention goes beyond the limits of normative ethics, duty ethics, or the constraints of knowledge, and is significant in pursuing the goal of individual's daily moral practice and well-being. Virtue ethics place emphasis on the will for the prosperity of the community, well-being, the virtues, character, and the cultivation of the agent. (...)

    Concerning the Distinction between Xing and Ming in Mengzi 7B24 Focusing on Zhu Xi's Two Interpretations. 張元泰 - 2023 - THE JOURNAL OF ASIAN PHILOSOPHY IN KOREA 59:5-34.
    In the latter part of Mencius 7B24, Mencius makes the distinction between ‘xing (性)’ and ‘ming (命)’. Zhao Qi interprets this ‘ming’ as ‘minglu (命祿)’, which means luck, accidental encounters, or times that one faces. On the other hand, Zhu Xi refers it to as the quality that one is endowed with. He then provides a new interpretation of ‘ming’ in the latter section. Zhu Xi’s understanding appears to be similar to Wang Chong’s theory of endowment of qi, and therefore (...)

    Evaluations of Joseon Confucian Scholars on Shen Gui-bao’s Concept of Intelligence and Jeong Jae-gyu’s Understanding of it. 李遠碩 - 2023 - THE JOURNAL OF ASIAN PHILOSOPHY IN KOREA 59:177-205.
    Jeong Jae-gyu (鄭載圭, 1843-1911) was a scholar in the late Joseon Dynasty who contributed to the solidification and formation of the Nosa school (蘆沙學派) through the publication of Nosajib (蘆沙集) and active lecture activities based on the independent acceptance of his teacher, Ki Jeong-jin (奇正鎭). He explained the concept of intelligence based on the definitions of Shen Gui-bao (沈貴珤), an early scholar of the Yuan Dynasty, and even though the volume was not large, he presented a deep analysis and a (...)

    Widang Jeong In-bo’s Empathy of the Sincere Mind and Governing a Nation and Saving the People. 韓正吉 - 2023 - THE JOURNAL OF ASIAN PHILOSOPHY IN KOREA 59:207-243.
    This article reexamines Jeong In-bo’s lifelong studies and achievements from the perspective of understanding him as a statesman. Keenly empathizing the pain of the people who lost their nation, he recognizes that it was the task of the times to reclaim national sovereignty and relieve the people from suffering. He finds the cause of the collapse of Joseon inside Joseon, and diagnoses that all problems originated from ‘thinking of promoting one’s own interests (自私念)’. What he suggested to resolve these problems (...)
