Total I Ching: Myths for Change Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the oldest and most respected divinatory systems in the world, the I Ching is available in two translations—the Confucian and the Zhouyi—which offer conflicting interpretations. As opposed to the more standard Confucian version, the Zhouyi translation was reconstructed by 20th-century scholars and archaeologists and presents the imaginative world of myth and ritual that is the basis of Eastern thought. This revolutionary volume utilizes modern scholarship, archaeological and linguistic research, Eastern philosophy, and comparative religion to fuse these two traditions and present them in a united, comprehensive, and accessible new form. Also for the first time, this translation details the mythology of the divinatory system known as the Myths for Change.

Synopsis:

I Ching is the oldest, most respected divinatory system in the world. There are currently two kinds of translations available, which offer conflicting interpretations--the Confucian version and an earlier version called Zhouyi. Reconstructed by 20th-century scholars and archaeologists, Zhouyi presents the imaginative world of myth and ritual that is the basis of Eastern thought. Now, for the first time, Stephen Karcher fuses these two traditions using modern scholarship, archaeological and linguistic research, Eastern philosophy, and comparative religion, presenting them to the Western reader in a comprehensive, accessible, and vivid new form. Total I Ching is a complete oracle with instructions for use in all life situations. It is also the first translation to detail the mythology of the divinatory system, the Myths for Change.
