Understanding The I Ching


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The West's foremost translator of the I Ching, Richard Wilhelm thought deeply about how contemporary readers could benefit from this ancient work and its perennially valid insights into change and chance. For him and for his son, Hellmut Wilhelm, the Book of Changes represented not just a mysterious book of oracles or a notable source of the Taoist and Confucian philosophies. In their hands, it emerges, as it did for C. G. Jung, as a vital key to humanity's age-old collective unconscious. Here the observations of the Wilhelms are combined in a volume that will reward specialists and aficionados with its treatment of historical context--and that will serve also as an introduction to the I Ching and the meaning of its famous hexagrams. -- "Religious Studies Review"

Teaching The I Ching Book Of Changes


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Teaching the I Ching (Book of Changes) is a comprehensive and authoritative source for understanding the 3,000-year-old Book of Changes, arguably the most influential Chinese classical text. Beginning in the 1960s, as a result of the renewed interest in Asian philosophy and the availability of a readable English translation, the I Ching (Pinyin Yijing) became a countercultural classic and attracted scholarly interest as well. In China, the Yijing was alternately condemned and praised during the Mao era - though the Great Helmsman was rumored to consult the Changes himself. It is now widely read in China, and scholarship on the Changes has blossomed both in China and the West, stimulated by advances in reconstructing the ancient Chinese language and by the recent discovery of previously lost versions of the text. Chinese traditional culture cannot be understood without some familiarity with the Yijing, but it is one of the most difficult of the world's ancient classics. Thetext is fragmentary with many obscure allusions and conflicting interpretive traditions spanning more than two thousand years. The associated diagrams have complex interpretative schemes. Geoffrey Redmond and Tze-Ki Hon provide the necessary background for teachers at the university level to cover the Yijing even if they are not specialists. This book also serves as an introduction for students beginning the study of the Changes and presents an up-to-date survey of recent scholarship.

The Original I Ching Oracle Or The Book Of Changes


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Often referred to as the Eranos edition, this revised and updated translation offers the most substantial advance in I Ching since Richard Wilhelm introduced the oracle to the West in the 1920s. The I Ching is one of the oldest Chinese texts and the world’s oldest oracle. Accumulated from over 2,500 years of diviners, sages and shamans and born out of the oral tradition, the I Ching as we know it today is a collection of texts, imagery and advice, philosophy and poetry, divided into 64 chapters. There are 64 hexagrams, created from a collection of six lines, either broken or solid. In order to “read” from the book, you must cast a hexagram. The traditional method required yarrow sticks but nowadays is based on tossing three coins six times. The Original I Ching Oracle or Book of Changes was inspired by Carl Gustav Jung's insights into the psyche and researched for more than 60 years through the Eranos Foundation of Switzerland. It presents the oracular core of the I Ching as a psychological tool: the symbols interact with our minds in the same way dream images do.

I Ching


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The 2,500 year old Yi-jing or I Ching, translated as The Book of Changes, is a Chinese work of divination and prophecy. Dating from the 4th century BC, it is traditionally consulted by performing complex routines of dropping bundles of dried grass stalks. The particular patterns formed when six stalks are dropped are represented by 64 symbols called hexagrams, which show every possible combination of broken and unbroken stalks. The Book of Changes tells the reader how to interpret the hexagrams to decide which is the best approach or action in a given situation. This book features these 64 hexagrams, and their accompanying name in Chinese script, accompanied by an elegant translation of the interpretations. The book also features additional commentaries and explanations of ancient Chinese divination. Beautifully produced in traditional Chinese binding and with a timeless design, this book will allow anyone fascinated by the traditional philosophies of the East to follow in the footsteps of Confucius and use the I Ching to predict their destiny.
