- Jumun chosun(『朱文抄選』) is a textbook for royal lecture(經筵) which was compiled by Song Si-yeol(宋時烈) in 1683. At that time Soron(少論)s political offense to Noron (老論) and Song Si-yeol was intensified. Song Si-yeol thought that it was a serious political crisis and for overcoming this crisis it was positively necessary to strengthen education of king about the Learning of Zhuxi(朱子學). For this purpose he selected important writings of Zhuxi(朱熹) from Jujaseo jeolyo(『朱子書節要』) and Jumun Jakhai (『朱文酌海』) and compiled Jumun chosun.
Thought the writings of Jumun chosun were written by Zhuxi, the one who selected and compiled them was Song Si-yeol. It means that the contents of Jumun chosun reflected Song Si-yeols view about the political situation of those days. The core arguments of Jumun chosun were two. First, the rectification of kings mind was the practical virtues of the Learning of Zhuxi. Second, the government operation lead by the party of exemplary person(君子黨) and the reinforcement of the theory of revenge on Qing dynasty(對淸復讎論) must be the fundamental principles of government administration. These principles corresponded with Song Si-yeols political thought and it means that Song Si-yeol wanted to imprint his political thought on kings mind through the learning of Jumun chosun.
