DASAN, LIFE AND DREAM OF HANGANG RIVER
Period/ 2012.04.27(Fri) ~ 2012.10.03(Wed)
Dasan Jeong Yakyoung was born and grown up in Mahyeon, the starting point of the Hangang River where two streams meet. The Silhak philosophy of Dasan was formed and completed through the Hangang River. Like the Hangang River running to the sea, the thinking and civilization awareness of Dadan should be the basis for preparing the future society and present. One hundred years after his death, Dasan’s philosophy was the nucleus of the Joseon studies movement in the history of the ordeal of losing national sovereignty. In 2012, greeting the 250th anniversary of the birth of Dasan, Dasan was designated as a great personality whose anniversary is also celebrated by UNESCO.
