Birth of René Descartes - March 31
René Descartes was born on March 31, 1596 and died on February 11, 1650.
Descartes, who was a French philosopher, mathematician, physicist, and writer, spent most of his adult life in the Dutch Republic. Referred to as many as the "Father of Modern Philosophy," much of subsequent Western philosophy is a response to the writings of Descartes, which continue to be studied closely to this day. His Meditations on First Philosophy in particular continues to be a standard text at most university philosophy departments. The influence of Descartes on mathematics is profound. In addition to being known as the father of analytical geometry, the Cartesian coordinate system which allows geometric shapes to be expressed in algebraic equations was named after Descartes. Descartes was also one of the key figures in the Scientific Revolution.
The Chunhyangga is one of the five surviving stories of the Korean pansori storytelling tradition. The other stories are Simcheongga, Heungbuga, Jeokbyeokga and Sugungga. Although based on older traditional songs, it was composed in its present form in the 1870s by the pansori writer Shin Jae-hyo.
The Chunhyangga tells the story of love between Chunhyang, the daughter of a kisaeng entertainer, and Yi Mongryong, the son of a magistrate. After the two are illegally married, Mongryong goes to Seoul and a corrupt local magistrate attempts to force Chunhyang to be his concubine. She refuses and is faced with death, but is rescued at the last minute by Mongryong returning in his new role as a secret royal inspector.
The story is set in Namwon, in Jeolla province, where an annual Chunhyang Festival is held.
