Eastern Learning and the Heavenly Way

This chapter deals with the developments that occurred during the early years of Son's sojourn in Japan from 1901 to 1904. Following a period of turmoil within Tonghak's ranks, Son had left Korea in order to better assess the changing international situation and Korea's role in it. By doing this, he hoped to apply this knowledge to propagate Tonghak's agenda more effectively in Korea and later bring it out of obscurity to the world. He would end up in Japan, where, except for a brief return visit to Korea, he remained until the beginning of 1906. Son's experiences in Japan affected his vision for Tonghak and Korea, and he proceeded to work on the synthesis of Tonghak thought with a new discourse that advocated governmental reform, popular rights, and economic and social development.

Keywords:   Japan, Son Pyŏng-hŭi, Korea, Tonghak thought, governmental reform, popular rights, economic development, social development
