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.

Eun-Jeung Lee

Yu Kil-chun’s translation of Karl Rathgen’s “Political Science” (Chŏngch’ihak) and its relevance to modern day Korean social science

Abstract Yu Kil-chun’s translation into Korean of Karl Rathgen’s “Politikwissenschaft” is not faithful to the Japanese version of Rathgen’s book. He dropped entire passages in translating from the Japanese version, while also inserting some passages of his own in other parts of his book. He must have chosen to translate Rathgen’s book, rather than any other book, for a reason. This is the very starting point of this paper.
