Book Reviews 조선시대 달력의 변천과 세시의례. Chosŏn sidae tallyŏk ŭipyŏnch’ŏn kwa sesi ŭirye [Calendar change and seasonal rites during the Chosŏn dynasty]. By 이창익 Chang-ik Yi, Seoul: Ch’angbi, 2013, 363 p. The modern concept of time as uniform, objective, and homogenous has played an important role in unifying the Korean people—socially, economically, and politically. However, at the same time, it is also assumed that modern time has resulted in the elimination of the sacred from the ordinary world by its designa- tion of various spatio-temporal practices, which were conducted following the traditional calendar, as superstition. In accordance with the devaluation of the religious aspects of the traditional calendar as superstitious, most studies of traditional Korean concepts of time have been constructed by focusing on the scientific aspect of the calendar.
