“The I Ching (or) Book Of Changes”
The I Ching (or) Book Of Changes, a common source for both Confucianist and Taoist philosophy, is one of the first efforts of the human mind to place itself within the universe. It has exerted a living influence in China for 3,000 years, and interest in it has been rapidly spreading in the West.
The first section is about the hexagrams — the meanings of the lines and Wilhelm’s extensive comments. The second presents two early commentaries that interpret the wisdom of the divinatory text, also with Wilhelm’s helpful notes. And the third section takes us back to the hexagrams for more detailed commentary from both ancient Chinese thinkers and Wilhelm.
Includes a folded chart with key to the hexagrams as well as bibliographical references and indexes. 808 pages.Share this product:
