ABSTRACT

Research studies on the Classics have really started in the 16th century since upon her foundation, the Yi Dynasty adopted Chu Hsi Science as the ruling principle. The Reflection on the Classics by Park, Se Dang and its different interpretations, which was anti Chu Hsi in nature, were compiled, even in the late 17th century when A Systematic Investigation on the Analects and Mencius by Song, Shi Yul a compilation of the Study on the Classics was being published. This interpretant towards the Study on the Classics continued to be so throughout the latter half (18th century) of the Yi Dynasty. Major research trends towards the Confucian Analects were classified into the following two: interpretations centering around Chu Note; interpretations relative to Chu Note. The trend reflects a ratio of 10 to 5, meaning that Chu Hsi centered tendencies prevailed in the study of the Analects of the Yi Dynasty after the 18th century as well. On the basis of the understanding of the absolute superiority of the line of Cheng Chu, however, some of the scholars who were oriented towards Chu Note noted the Diagram Interpretation or the relationship with other Classics and attempted to conduct research studies on the Analects. This is understood as an expression of will to identify the true meaning of the Analects, breaking away from its traditional note. The will clearly finds itself in the works of Jung, Yak Yong who built a realm of the study on the Classics in a new and different way, criticizing notes from Han and Song Dynasties. Yet, no tendency to deviate from Chu-Note was visible except in the case of Jung, Yak Yong and Shim, Dae Yoon. There is no denying that Chu Note was still influential until the until the outset of the 20th century, as shown in the publication of Detailed Interpretation on the Four Books and Its Note by Park, Moon Ho.
