Heaven, Earth, and Man in the Book of Changes

The Book of Changes [I Ching or Chou I] was the first of the Five Confucian Classics and served as the wellspring of both Confucian and Taoist thought. Following in the tradition of his father, Richard Wilhelm, who made the best known and most respected translation of the I Ching, Hellmut Wilhelm came to be regarded as a preeminent authority on the Book of Changes. In these seven lectures, he carried forward his inquiry into its significance, both as a manual of divination and as a work of philosophy.

Reviews

"The appearance of these lectures together in English for the first time is welcome . . . each explores significant concepts and images from the text. Topics covered include the creative principle, wanderings of the spirit, and the building of one's own city as a state of formation. The essays on the concept of time, human events and their meaning, and the interaction of heaven, earth, and man are especially insightful."—Choice
