Abstract
본고는 조선 초 대간의 언론을 公論으로 인식하고 있었던 사실에 기초해, 당시 ‘공론’ 개념이 어떤 맥락으로 통용되고 있었는지를 검토한 논문이다. 유교국가 조선은 仁政과 德治로 표상되는 왕도정치의 추구 속에, 언론기관을 설치하여 下情을 상달하고 時政을 논하는 言責을 부여하고 있었다. 따라서 下情을 상달하고 국정의 문제점을 논하는 대간의 책무 상,대간 언론에는 기본적으로 公論으로서의 위상이 부여되고 있었다. 하지만 대간의 언론은 기본적으로 조정 내 관료들의 여론을 반영하고 있다는 점에서 物議로서의 속성을 가진 것이기도 했다. 결국 대간 언론이 공론으로 인식되고 있었던 맥락은 대간 언론 그 자체가 순수하게 公平․公正․天理의 속성을 갖고 있어서라기보다, 언론제도를 통해 유교적 이상을 실현하기 위한 관료제 운영의 한 방편 때문이었다고 할 수 있겠다. 한편 성종대에 이르러서는 왕권이 도덕적 권위와의 대비 속에 상대화되는 가운데 공론의 위상이 강화되며 대간이 공론을 전유해 가고 있었다. 왕권이 약화되는 상황에서 청요직들이 공론의 위상을 지닌 대간 언론을통해 자신들의 입지를 확대시키고 있었던 것이다. 이처럼 대간을 위시한 청요직들이 도덕적권위에 기대어 현실 정치 속에서 공론의 위상을 강화시키고 있었다는 사실은, 조선의 정치가 도덕적 정치문화의 자장 속에서 운영되고 있었음을 의미하는 것임과 함께, 공론의 개념 역시 그 같은 도덕적 정치문화와 관련하여 이해할 수 있음을 시사하는 것이라고 할 수 있겠다.

Examined in this article is the question of what kind of nuances the so-called concept of “public consensus(公論)” was harboring in the early days of the Joseon dynasty. The question itself is based upon the fact that opinions of theremonstration officers were being considered as the essence of the aforementioned ‘public consensus’ at the time.Joseon as we all know, was a dynasty based upon Confucianism. It aspired to fulfill its obligation of establishing a ‘benevolent governance(仁政․德治),’ and in order to do that it established certain remonstration offices which wouldmonitor the conditions of the subjects and have them reflected in governmental discussions. Because of such nature of their mission, their opinions certainly carried weight and were considered as ‘voices of the public.’Yet the opinions of the remonstration officers were not only those of the people, but also those of ‘officials inside the government.’ It was not like their opinions were ‘interpreted’ as a clear, fair, undistorted relay(公平․公正․天理) of the voices of the people, as much as they were ‘considered’ as such, because such mechanism was necessary to bring a Confucian-based politics to reality.In the meantime, during King Seongjong’s reign the authority behind the ‘public consensus’ was reinforced, rendering the king’s leadership a relatively weak one, while the remonstration officers continued to monopolize the ‘publicopinion.’ With the king left in a position weaker than before, the governmental officials appointed to the seat of remonstration officers were expanding their political platform under the name of their public functions.The fact that certain governmental officials whose functions were supposedly moral and above-standard were abusing their moral authority to expand their political footing whilst packaging their opinion as a ‘public consensus,’ shows us that the Joseon politics were operating upon a ‘moral political culture,’ whose nature should be further discussed in future studies.
