This interview took place in the No. 2 Humanities Department Conference Room on the third floor of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Korea, from 1:50 to 3:40 p.m. on November 5, 2012. The discussion of Dr. Cho’s scholarship focuses on his major writings and is organized thematically according to distinct trends in his scholarship. The primary goal was to inquire into Dr. Cho’s scholarship and its significance through a general overview of his work, and an effort was made to avoid detailed discussion on particular areas. The interview was conducted in Korean and is organized as a series of questions by Kim Heon-seon and answers by Cho Dong-il. Dr. Cho, who is 73 this year, was clearer and sharper than ever, although his manner of speaking has grown gentler and he seemed to have arrived at a place where his scholarship has fully ripened.
