The Complete I Ching: A Definitive Translation by the Taoist Master Alfred Huangby Alfred Huang
Synopses & Reviews
•The first translation to honor the authentic Chinese spirit of the Book of Change
To the Chinese, the I Ching is nothing without the Confucian commentaries known as the Ten Wings. Previous editions have given them only a minor place in the book, or have left them out altogether. In this new translation, they are restored to their central importance by Master Huang.
This book also emphasizes the intricate connections between the 64 possible hexagrams, and introduces several new methods for doing readings.
This authoritative translation is the first by an eminent Chinese scholar, and it includes the essential Confucian commentaries.
