ABSTRACT

This paper was planned under macroscopic aim which was to research certain aspects of Boyi acception and historical context of critic discourse on Boyi in Joseon era. Boyi Liezhuan of Shiji written by Simaqian was the most text read through Joseon era. This diligently reading could brought political critic on Boyi Liezhuan and various debates surrounding Boyi. The study on these critics and discourses can be good windows to understand not only aspects of Boyi but also that time. Therefore this paper made an analytical text with Boyiron written by Yeonam Park Jiwon standing on center of debate. Then this paper reconsidered discussions done until now and read Park Jiwon’s consc- iousness directivity. So this paper revealed a certain aspect Boyi discourse and Boyi acception in the late Joseon. That time, Jeong On, Kim Sisuep, Yoon Gi, Oh Jaesun, Song Munhuem, Park Jaega, Sung Haeeung etc consisting of historical context on Boyi discourses representing Boyi theory, tried new reading through putting Boyi argument of Park Jiwon into Boyi discourse. Meanwhile researchers understood Yeonam’s Boyiron in political contexts that was the conquer the north and Bukhak. However Yeonam’s Boyiron and Yeonam’s the conquer the north argument were not close each other and were not found critical intention on Boyi. As a result, discussing Boyiron only in the field of the conquer the north and Bukhak could not exist. Also it closely related established discourses surrounding Boyi. Yeonam combined understanding generally on Boyi through Boyiron with not unilinear understanding of his time but various understanding. He noticed relation Boyi and King Mu in vertical structure in the first volume and focused relation Boyi and Mija, Bigan, Gija and Taegong in horizontal structure in the second volume. Through this, he solved two important problems become controversy and accur- ately located position of Boyi on two dimensional coordinate. Which overcame contradiction between justification and revolution. Which combined differences of the ruler and the ruled’s relation represented for Miji, Bigan, Gija, Boyi, Taegong etc and ethos ruling this relation without conflict. Park JIwon’s such directivity consistently influenced his use of life centered on endurance. The macroscopic aim set in this paper is into these result, which can draw additional conclusion like followings. Many people such as Yoon Gi, Oh Jaesun, Song Munhuem, Park Jaega, Sung Haeeung etc participated in Boyi discourses and mass produced various critics. These critics mainly dealt with justification and revolution, ethos ruling the ruler and the ruled’s relation, and patience. The range of these critics can help to reveal category of Boyi acception and the directivity and more.
