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.
A translation of the early document of Chinese philosophy with explanatory notes
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.
Wilhelm frequently wrote and lectured on the Book of Changes, supplying guidelines to its ideas and ways of thinking. Collected here are four lectures he gave between 1926 and 1929. The lectures are significant not only for what they reveal about Chinese tradition and culture, but also for their reflections of the scholarly and cultural milieu prevalent in Germany during that time. Originally published in 1979. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
The I Ching, or Book of Changes, has been consulted as an oracle and explored as a book of wisdom and philosophy for 3000 years. Now Princeton University Press offers an interactive CD-ROM edition of this great classic, built on the entire text of the original Wilhelm/Baynes translation that has inspired over a million readers since its publication in the early 1950s. Through its familiar system of 64 six-line hexagrams, the I Ching attempts to render all phenomena in the universe in terms of the interplay of the primal forces of Heaven and Earth. In this CD edition, China's ageless work is harmonized with a stunning landscape of natural beauty, meticulously rendered architecture, and a background of gentle music and narration. In the open-air Pavilion, users can consult the Oracle through the traditional method of yarrow stalk divination or the simpler coin divination--or by entering a hexagram--for instant access to the appropriate readings of the Image, the Judgment, and the Lines. The text reader incorporates all levels of the text and all the Wilhelm commentary. The Library's rooms serve as a guide to the rich text of the Book of Changes, allowing effortless exploration of the deeper levels of the work, including the Ten Wings and other writings on the I Ching representing over 2500 years of study by Taoists, Confucians, and other scholars of this great work. Throughout the I Ching, tours await to guide you to both the deep resources of the disc and the many tools for using them. From its early days, when sages cut the work apart to shuffle its pages, the I Ching has awaited three thousand years for a medium deep enough to hold it--and responsive enough to adapt the Changes to each user. Whether you seek wisdom, advice, translations of each original Chinese text, or an experience deep within another culture's thought, The Multimedia I Ching is a perfect environment. Finally, the world's oldest hypertext finds its home. Both Mac and Windows versions are on the same hybrid disc. Sample the I Ching on the internet at http://iching.princeton.edu in July.

A noted Russian sinologue, Iulian Shchutskii tried to find out how the I China was put together and what the terms meant when they were written. Accordingly, he goes back to the original text, studies the structure of its language, and examines its concepts in terms of its own images and ideas rather than through the preconceived constructs with which most Western scholars approach the book.

At last, a version of the I Ching that's not for dummies or scholars, but for the rest of us. Like most modern versions of the I Ching, Michael Hurn's book is used to consult the ancient wisdom of the I Ching. But its use of simple English and a unique new layout make for a version that is more usable in everyday life. Everyone needs guidance, but in today's busy world, the usual sources (family, friends, church, etc.) may not always be on hand to help. This is where the I Ching (the book of change) can be a useful source of comfort and advice that is always available. The I Ching is an ancien.
