Chʻoŭi Ŭisun: A Liberal Sŏn Master and an Engaged Artist in Late Chosŏn Korea
Scholars of Choson Korea tend to view Buddhism negatively, or at best ignore it, and at present there is a lack of research on this crucial topic. Through appreciation of the life and thought of Choui Uisun (1786-1866), this book attempts to recover and supplement the intellectual history of religious culture in Korea.
