Summary This volume offers a fully annotated translation of the 'Chasonğnok'. Following a groundbreaking discussion of T'oegye's life and ideas according to the 'Chasonğnok' and his other major writings, it presents the core of his thought in six interrelated sections
Notes "The Chasŏngnok (Record of self-reflection) is a special "record" (rok or nok; collection) of twenty-two philosophical and scholarly letters written by Yi T'oegye (1501-1570), a leading thinker and scholar in the Korean tradition of Neo-Confucianism ... The letters ... were carefully selected by T'oegye himself after practicing 'self-reflection' (chasŏng) on his understanding and experience of Confucian learning and self-cultivation. T'oegye wrote these major letters, many of which are quite lengthy, during his fifties, until around the year 1560. They are addresses to his six close disciples and three junior colleagues, one of whom was Yi Yulgok, who himself became a famous Neo-Confucian thinker in Korea"--Page 1
