ABSTRACT

Under the assumption that 'Honam Saryu' has a distinctive nature, which differs from that of Yeongnam Sarim(groups of Confucian scholars) or Kiho Sarim in their formation and development, this study aims to demonstrate validity of the independence of Honam Sarim from Kiho Sarim. First, noticing that the academic vein led by Kim Gweng-Pil and Jo Gwang-Jo played an important role in formation of the Sarim(groups of Confucian scholars), this study examines their academic characteristics and academic relations between Youngnam Sarim and Honam Sarim. Kim Gweng-Pil inherited moral philosophy to the Honam Saryu in Suncheon, his exiled place. Choi San-du and Yu Gye-rin who had been educated by Kim Gweng Pil educated Kim In-who and Yu Hee-chun, main members of Honam Sarim, and then Ki Dae-Seung followed them. Though the scholars of Honam Sarim were suffered in the Sahwa(massacre of scholars) period, they actively participated in the reformative politics led by Jo Gwang-Jo, which resulted in their exile or retirement. However, they participated in enlightenment of country people actively, proposing realization of principles presented in Sohak. And they made a great contribution to improvement in the Confucianism through hard study of the Confucian theories. Therefore, this study suggests their practice of village education and serious consideration of Sohak as characteristics of Honam study.
