Description

Yohan Yoo examines the instructions of two influential Neo-Confucian sages on the discipline of reading Confucian texts. They recommended imaginatively tasting the text while visualizing its author and hearing the author’s voice reciting the contents rather than the reader’s own. Yoo emphasizes that this discipline went beyond metaphor to employ the senses imaginatively in ritual reading.
