Bak Jiwon (Korean: 박지원; Hanja: 朴趾源; 1737–1805), styled Yeonam (Korean: 연암; Hanja: 燕巖, 'Rock of swallow'), was a philosopher and novelist in the late Joseon dynasty. He has been regarded as one of the greatest thinkers of the so-called "Practical Learning (silhak)" movement. Bak Jiwon belonged to the "School of Profitable Usage and Benefiting the People" (Korean: 이용후생파; Hanja: 利用厚生派; RR: Iyong Husaeng-pa) to promote the industrialization of his country and the development of trade by positively introducing western technologies to Joseon Korea. Bak Jiwon proposed that Joseon import advanced technologies from the Qing dynasty, and promote mercantilism.
