This brings up another question, somewhat related to the introductory 
reading question. Does anyone know if the works of T'oegye ("Ten Diagrams", 
as above, plus others), Yulgok, etc. have been translated to English? In 
that same vein, but to the Buddhist lean, whatever happened to the project 
translating the complete works of Wonhyo?

Thanks in advance,
