ABSTRACT

<Yangbanjeon> is very helpful to analyse the consciousness of writer condensed in the literature of Yeonam Park Ji-won(1737~1805). He has definitive consciousness of Scholar as a nobility. However, he showed that the nobility is based on the origin of the masses and progressively criticized the identity of nobility rather than he had relative superiority to the masses. It is noteworthy that the consciousness began in <Yangbanjeon>. The author categorized his mind of Scholar into three through <Yangbanjeon> and examined them, centering on analyses of his orientation on what change it brought to his consciousness. They are summarized as follows: criticizing impractical reading, having double idea of substance, and warning against abuse of institutions. As, in <Yangbanjeon>, consciousness of the author is not projected into a certain character, the study examined the relations between materials of his writings and those of other writings. The results of analysing consciousness are summarized as follows: The duty of Scholar is reading, but reading should be oriented towards public life beyond personal greed. If Scholars are active in economic activities which can be sublimed into the spirit of age, use of matter can be justified. As the nobility who misuse institutions are like thiefs, they should be away from power or have no interest in it.
