- This dissertation aims to analyze Fukuzawa Yukichi’s theory of Chosun politics: to review 313 Chosun-relaated ‘essays’ carried in [Jiji Shinpo] which Fukuzawa Yukichi presented from the viewpoint of ‘political criticism’ and to analyze the content of the theory. in detail, this dissertation divides Fukuzawa’s Chosun-related political criticism into five periods:before the first publicaion of [Jiji Shinpo], about the time of Im-o military revolt, about the time of Kapshin Coup d’etat, during the period under the syste, of Tianjin treaty, and about the time of the Sino-Japanese War.
Fukuzawa’'s theory of Chosun politics could be confìrmed to coerce the Chosun’'s
civiIization always by means of ‘'intervention in the national politics by arms' by intimidation all the time with the exception of the period of ‘'cultural engineering’' to Chosun right after the Im-o military revolt. The theory of Chosun politics by means of ‘underta the project for civilization by divering funds' and ‘migration and mixed residence' could be defined, deed, in essence, to be based on ‘intervention in the national politics by arms'. Tbe ultimate purpose or goal of Fukuzawa’ s theory of Chosun politics, however, was not to annex Chosun but to let it be a client state of or affected by Japan. In short, Fukuzawa who did not have a logic to justify the Japanese entry into Chosun except for ‘the theory of Asian solidarity’ to prevent ‘spreading flames', maintained a consistent standpoint of just ‘Asian solidarity’exclusive of [theory of Chosun politics].
