The first part of this article offers a translation and analysis of Toegye’s
arguments against Wang Yangmyeong’s philosophy as seen in his short
but highly influential essay “Jeonseumnok nonbyeon” (Ch. Chuanxilu
lunbian 傳習錄論辯) (Refutation of Wang Yangmyeong’s Record for Practice).
It presents an analysis of the arguments found in this influential and
remarkable piece of writing and suggests some ways Wang or his later
followers might have responded to several of Toegye’s criticisms. It also
sketches some ways that certain of Toegye’s arguments raise issues that
remain of interest to philosophers today, not only in regard to how the
later Confucian tradition is conceived and studied but also in regard to
how we think about human nature and moral psychology and how we
might work to improve the former through a process of self-cultivation.
The last part (Section IV) of the article presents the first complete English
translation of Toegye’s text.
