ABSTRACT

This paper is to review the human existence and the origin of academic thought of professor Lee, Hang-nyeong(So-go), paying due regard to his whole life. He studied laws at Kyeong-seong imperial university. After the freedom from Japanese imperialism he took up the study of philosophy of law and civil law, but he did not release his hold on literature. He made the best use of Literature, which could resolve the all doubts of life. Literature has creativeness, conscience and idealized view, but Jurisprudence attatches importance to actuality, concreteness and practical aspect. Therefore he expected that these two realms are to fuse into reconciliation for the pursuit of right human society. Also Lee Professor enthusiastically studied the origin of Korean thought and combined it with his life which is connecting academic works and religions. Especially He firmly maintained the inter-disciplinary view which should have the integrated appreation on various academic realms, such as Literature․History․Philosophy․Oriental thought․Law and the like. He spoke his mind that it was very important to study the respect for man’s life and dignity, conscience, autonomy in his philosophy of law. But also in religious life, he believed in various religions such as Confucianism, Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity etc.. After the freedom from Japanese imperialism, he continuously lived a penitential life because he had been a public career under the Japanese colonial period. Eventually I expect that we have to carefully introduce his academic and educational thought into our risk society which is in a state of confusion.
