ABSTRACT

Choi Suk-Jong(1646-1715) was highly reputed bureaucrat who held prime minister posts 8 times during King Sookjong’s reign. Ruling scholars were impassioned to rebuild the nation and accomplish the Joseon Junghwa Ideology(朝鮮中華主義) after the Japanese invasion of 1592(壬辰倭亂) and the Manchu’s invasion in 1636(丙子胡亂). Intellectual Choi tried to recover self-esteem as a guard of the Junghwa Ideology(中華主義) by writing the 《Kyeongsae Hunminjungumdoseol (經世訓民正音圖說)》. 《Kyeongsae Hunminjungumdoseol (經世訓民正音圖說)》was hand copied and not in good condition to understand cryptic sentences and letters. However, his insight on correct pronunciation was outstanding. He criticized So-ong(邵雍)‘s Theory of Yi(易), theorized 《訓民正音準皇極經世四象體用之數圖》 and wrote 《聲音律呂唱和全數圖》. Evolutinary process of culture was shown through acceptance-modification-recreation.
