BOOK REVIEWS A Korean Confucian Way of Life and Thought: The Chasŏngnok (Record of Self- Reflection). By Yi Hwang (T’oegye). Translated, annotated, and with an introduction by Edward Y. J. Chung.

Reviewed by Youngsun Back Sungkyunkwan University email@example.com Edward Y. J. Chung’s A Korean Confucian Way of Life and Thought is great news to the field of Korean philosophy. It has been some twenty years since Chung, one of the few experts on Korean Confucianism in English-speaking academia, pub- lished his first monograph on Yi Hwang (T’oegye, 1501–1570) and Yi Yi (Yulgok, 1536–1584) in 1995, and now we are able to see and savor another fruit of Chung’s lifelong scholar ship. This time, by providing an English translation of T’oegye’s own work, Chung lays a stepping-stone for readers to gain direct access to the scholarly life of T’oegye. Given this purpose, I think Chung’s choice of the Chasŏngnok 自省録 (Record of self-reflection) is not only critical, because this work has not been sufficiently appre- ciated in the current literature on T’oegye in both Western and East Asian languages,
