Abstract

The I ching (Book of changes) played an important role in the development of Korean thought and culture. This research examines the impact of the I ching on late-Choson Confucianism. It attempts to deepen our understanding of late-Choson Confucianism through a textual examination of its I ching scholarship, focusing on the Chu Hsi school in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and the school of practical learning (sirhak) in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The characteristics of I ching scholarship in late-Choson Korea are discussed from a comparative perspective.
