Abstract

One cause of confusion over the nature of early Chosŏn intellectual history has been the practice of evaluating the thought of fourteenth- and fifteenth-century Korean scholar-officials from the standpoint of the Zhu Xi orthodoxy of mid and late Chosŏn. This study reevaluates the ideas and policies of the prime architects of the new dynasty, men like Cho Chun and Chŏng To-jŏn, in the context of Koryŏ intellectual traditions and the Yuan-dynasty Neo-Confucianism that was introduced into Korea in the late thirteenth century.
