ABSTRACT

I think that the study on the ┌DongMuSunSaSaSangYakSungSangHumGoGa┘ of ┌DongMuYooGo┘ is basic material explaining the character of sasang-herb and prescription. Through the study on the ┌DongMuSunSaSaSangYakSungSangHumGoGa┘'s origin and meaning, I can take the result as follows. The first, that is composed of total 237 herbs of 90 spleen-herb (Soeumin-herb), 61 kidney-herb (Soyangin-herb), 67 lung-herb (Taeeumin-herb) and 19 liver-herb (Taeyangin-herb). The second, the origin of that is ┌JeJungSinPyun┘, ┌BangYakHapPyun┘ and ┌EuiHakIpMum┘. And DongMu classified traditional YakSungGa as spleen-herb, kidney-herb, lung-herb and liver-herb which is suitable to Sasangin, not created that. So we can know that the first understanding for DongMu' s herb is focused on the traditional YakSungGa. The third, DongMu's unique terminology of spleen-herb, kidney-herb, lung-herb and liver herb show his sight of symptom, disease and pharmacology, that is focused on small JangBu. The forth, through herb-nature gathered from traditional YakSungGa, that purposed to classfying each constitutional herb. So we can know his idea that the choice of herb is not in general efficacy but in personal constitution. As mentioned abovet, that can refer to an herbal argument of DongMu and ┌DongMuYooGoYakSungGa┘ that make known to be common can refer to an prescriptional argument of DongMu.
