Overview

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 classic translation which has been a key book in the Bollingen series. Combines Confucian and Taoist thinking in the interpretations of the hexagrams.

    Ancient philosophy in short bursts

    Few realize that Carl Jung based his 64 human archetypes on the archetypes presented in the hexagrams of the I Ching. Archetypes being principle themes common to human experience irrespective of culture and covering the gamut of human life experiences. It has also been used as a form of divination but from a philosophical standpoint it has many truths to reveal.

    Beautiful

    This is THE version of the I-Ching to own.
    I have a ragged version of the hard copy, and now I own the digital version. There are a few typos, but other than that its layout is excellent. What a great book.

    One of the few books I have purchased several times to give as gifts and I keep a copy at home and at the office.  I will forget about it for a long time and the need will arise for a bit of timeless wisdom.  And there it is and it always makes sense.

    One of the most powerful books ever

    I first read it cover to cover from its philosophy viewpoint. It explains a lot. Then I tried asking questions and was awed by the answers.

    The very best I Ching

    This was the first version of the I Ching I ever had, and though I've tried many other translations and interpretations (mainly due to being away from home and wanting a quick consultation with the oracle!), this is the clearest and the best. Highly recommended.

    Highly Recommended

    The I Ching Book of Changes completes my personal library of beloved books. This book comes with a life source of it's own. The wisdom and knowledge found within this book make it a true companion for all the ages. I am humbled and grateful to Marion Weinstein (Positive Magic) for her introduction to this unforgetable experience. Marion you are loved.
