Han Yuanzhen (1682-1751), an outstanding scholar of Ligu School, learns “principle (li)” from “material-force (qi),” and discusses “mind (xin)” based on “principle.” He has a clear theoretical standpoint, his argument with his fellow, Li Jian (1677-1727), is recorded in “Sameness or Differences between Human Nature and Animal Nature.” Their arguments are known as Huluo Debate, an important academic discussion in Korea. Through his studies on Confucianism, annotations of classics and historical texts, Han composes Survey on the Sameness and Differences of Zhu Xi’s Discourses (Zhuzi yanlun tongyikao). There are six volumes and thirty-nine categories in this book, which also includes Questions on Annotations of Analects of Confucius and Mencius (Lunmeng jizhu huowen). Since the doctrine of Zhu Xi covers an extensive range of knowledge, in this paper I mainly focus on the Four Books in order to analyze how Han Yuanzhen discusses Zhu Xi through Zhu’s letters, dicta, and annotations on classics. Zhu Xi’s academic achievement and lifelong thinking process will be further clarified through the studies of Han, who examines Zhu’s ideas with Zhu’s own texts, and even quotes Zhu’s words to compare with Lu Jiuyuan’s texts. These studies help readers to understand more about Zhu Xi’s thoughts among studies which distinguish between Philosophy of Principle (lixue) and Philosophy of Mind (xinxue), as well as Han School and Song School. And this further establishes the studies of Zhu Xi in Korea.
