ABSTRACT

After Kyeyujungran and Sejo's seizure of power, government school-party, which became the ruling party after the establishment of Chosun Dynasty, was divided inner their party. Sa-yuksin's trial to abolish the King Sejo, caused majority separated into two groups, Hungu(勳舊) and Sarim(士林) party. Through the eyes of Confucian justice and moral justification, Suyangdaegun should have not become the king. However, he chose the benefit of becoming the King rather than getting the reputation to be Jugong(周公) So it was not at all strange that the distribution of rewards like installation was held after Sejo's inauguration. It was Sejo's political purpose that he nominated Chiphyonjon(集賢殿) scholars like Sungsammun as Jungnan(靖難) and Joaik-kongsin(佐翼功臣) to cover his weak point of justice. Those who led the Sayuksin's trial to abolish the King Sejo were major politicians and scholars of early Chosun dynasty. They were not only the main scholars of Chiphyonjon which was established by Sejong, but also the politicians to contribute in establishing new national systems. They tried to actualize their ideals in their situation. They tried to keep the confucian justice and ideology. So they could not accept Sejo who killed his nephew and seized the power. Therefore, it is meaningful that the academic and political view of Sa-yuksin were similar to those of the spirit of the national foundation. The spirit of Sa-yuksin influenced the idea and political administration of sarim-party that occurred after the King Sungjong. We can recognize that the political view and ideas of Sa-yuksin were to actualize the confucianism and so was the Sarim-party. We can also illuminate the influence of their idea and political view through who was the descendant in the daughter's line of Sungsammun.
