Book Description
The Yi Jing (I Ching) is a classic Chinese literary and philosophical work on the relationship of people to one another and to nature. This book goes beyond all previous renderings of the Yi Jing in both scope and methods of presentation. The Yi Jing proper and its ten Wings are all included. This text is well-organized and the methods and procedures used by scholars since ancient times haev been reviewed and explained, enabling the reader to distinguish acceptable interpretations from specious ones. Each of the 64 hexagrams ends with a synopsis of the essence of the hexagram or its relation with others. This synoptic commentary on the Yi Jing has not been done before.
