ABSTRACT

In this thesis, I tried to consider Characteristics and instructive meanings of Confucian arts of life reflected in ink stone Epitaphs. Target work made prominent meaningful lessons related to human arts of life by menas of making shapes and attributes of ink stone fabled. Taking up the main subject, I studied common themes and chief subject matters by classifying them and found they had tried to teach us Confucian arts of life and virtues of moral training ultimately. Also they standardized characteristics of ink stone and made them a criterion for being on the alert for and reflecting on their lives and disciplining themselves. During the course, I confirmed our forefathers’ aesthetic attitude in ethics and useful values of moral sense in the literature. In conclusion, I could find out the lesson they sought after Confucian intellectual’s virtuous items - self-discipline, moral training, fidelity, etc I think this thesis is significant because there has been no preceding study. I’m going to extend my study into covering overall ‘munbangsau’ (the four precious things of the study) in addition to ink stone.
