Philip J. Ivanhoe and Dr. Hwa Yeong WANG, of the Sungkyun Institute for Confucian Studies and East Asian Philosophy (https://swb.skku.edu/sicep/index.do), Sungkyunkwan University, have been awarded a grant of $75,000.00 USD from the Korean Studies Promotion Service, to support their ongoing project to produce an annotated translation of the complete works of two Korean women Confucian philosophers: Im Yunjidang 任允摯堂 (1721-1793) and Gang Jeongildang 姜靜一堂 (1772-1832). They will be assisted by a graduate student from Sungkyukwan University, Mr. Jae Hyun SEO. Im and Gang both argued, on the basis of core, orthodox neo-Confucian beliefs, that women are equally capable of attaining the highest levels of moral achievement to become “female sages” (yeosaeng女聖). The themes they choose to write on, the genres they employed, and the style of their presentation offer remarkable insights into the lives of gentry women (yangban兩班) in the latter part of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1897). Gang was inspired by and explicitly followed Im and so their extant writings represent a lineage of women philosophers unique in all the world.
