ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to consider background of discussions about Chunqiuxue found in Jeongbaekgeukdaneoeon in Dongraebakui written by the Chinese scholar, Dongrae Yeo Jo Gyeom, and to analyze and criticize the Chunqiuxue. Yeo Jo Gyeom wrote Geunsarok together with Zhu xi and successively held various posts related to studies. He had a different view of Chunchujwajeon from Jwassi, as found in Dongraebakui. It is about the story of Jeong Jang Gong and Gong Suk Dan. In terms of this story, Jwassi pitied for Jeong Jang Gong who failed to beat his mother and grew evil in his brother, while Yeo Jo Gyeom brought a charge against him who made all the people cheated by his deliberate plans. It can be determined that Yeo Jo Gyeom’s view is clear and precise. However, it can be said that Yeo Jo Gyeom is clumsy in treating Jeong Jang Gong’s faults. That is because it was possible to make a smooth solution by presenting methods by brothers of Jobi and Josik, or Sun and Sang. It can therefore be said that he made narrow-minded application. So Dongrae Yeo Jo Gyeom had an excessive bent for justice and failed to be clearly fair-minded, although he was more accurately aware of Jeong Jang Gong’s thought and troubles. In this respect, it is hard to accept his logic,which is somewhat doubtful. It is right to give the first priority to justice between an emperor and feudal lords, or between brothers, with the second priority given to behavior.
