This chapter is a translation of the second half of one of Chŏng Tojŏn’s most influential works, A Literary Mirror to Order the World. In this section, Chŏng draws widely from Korean and more especially Chinese history to articulate his ideas about of the proper relationship between the ruler and his chief advisors, which he offered as a kind of blueprint for the newly founded Chosŏn dynasty. In this section of A Literary Mirror to Order the World, Chŏng Tojŏn widely quoted the works of Song dynasty Neo-Confucian scholars, most especially commentaries prepared by Zhu Xi.

Keywords:   Rites of Zhou, A Literary Mirror to Order the World, political ideals, Chinese classics, history, censorate, Zhu Xi
