Histories of Philosophy and Thought in Korean Language

  • In retrospect, historiography of philosophy and thought in the Korean language extends back to the 8th century. This bibliography offers a comprehensive guide to this relatively long time span with complex developments. Using thematic and regional categories, it attempts to demonstrate the whole landscape of Korean scholarship on histories of philosophy and thought. The introductory text offers a chronological reconstruction of the history of philosophical historiography in Korea, filling the gap between the premodern and modern discourses. It focuses mainly on two aspects: 1) The modern transformation of the traditional Korean historiographical knowledge and method, developed and cultivated by Confucian and Buddhist scholars. 2) The diversification of philosophical historiography after this process of globalization and methodical transformation, resulting in an own representation of the world history of philosophy. The case of Korea is especially interesting because it produced ist own versions of history despite drastically changing hegemonic constellations. It provides an excellent example of alternative histories of philosophy, written at the periphery of Eurocentric and Sinocentric order.
