Inhaltsangabe: As important to Chinese civilization as the Bible is to Western culture, the I Ching or Book of Changes is one of the oldest treasures of world literature. In this masterful new interpretation, Jack Balkin returns the I Ching to its rightful place as a book of wisdom that teaches how to live one's life in a changing and confusing world. Balkin's comprehensive and perceptive commentaries highlight a clear, understandable version of the core text of the I Ching that preserves its striking imagery while remaining faithful to the long tradition of ethical interpretations of the work. The Laws of Change: I Ching and the Philosophy of Life offers the most detailed commentaries available in English on the I Ching's ethical and philosophical teachings, a comprehensive survey of different methods of consulting the I Ching, and an excellent history of the I Ching's transformation from a Bronze Age diviner's manual to a beloved book of wisdom that lies at the very heart of Chinese culture. This is an indispensable work for anyone who wants to understand the I Ching and its history.
"[A]n engaging translation and interpretation of this Chinese classic. . . . [T]he I Ching's evocative imagery makes it a great work of literature, now more accessible than ever thanks to Balkin."-- Publisher's Weekly
"[A]n excellent I Ching to consult. . . Balkin [has] grasped the essence of the Changes."-- S.J. Marshall, Yijing Dao
