Integration Processes in the Circulation of Knowledge

Cases from Korea

Series:

Edited By Marion Eggert and Florian Pölking

Korea, geographically situated at cultural crossroads, has a long history of creative engagement with knowledge from outside sources. This volume discusses processes of knowledge integration – of interpretive adaptation, dissection, selection and re-assemblage, of reduction and amplification, as well as of blending with existing cognitive structures – in pre-modern and early modern times. The articles assembled deal with a wide range of sources (including material objects as carriers of knowledge) and with diverse fields of knowledge, spanning the realms of philosophy, religion, literature, military and technical knowledge, and political thought. Together, they richly illustrate the transformative powers inherent in re-configurations of knowledge.

Abstract This article deals with secondary transformations of military knowledge in the early part of Late Chosŏn Korea by focusing on two cases: the military theory of Qi Jiguang and Manchu military techniques. It discusses the process of knowledge integration and textual adaption, obstacles to this process, and the ensuing social transformations.
