An Authentic Translation of the Book of Changes by Margaret J. Pearson. Based on Recent Discoveries.
The I Ching or Book of Changes is one of the World’s most influential books.
Since its origin 3,000 years ago, it has become a compendium of wisdom used by people of many cultures and eras, analyzed by scholars and seekers alike.
This groundbreaking new translation by of the ancient Chinese classic is based on a text dating from the first centuries of the Zhou Dynasty, study of documents showing how it was used in the dynasty, and on current archaeological research findings.
It includes notes on the historical context and translational methodology, a how to reference summary, and the entire Chinese text.
Freed from the distorting effects of commentaries written a thousand years later and after, the essential meaning of the original text comes through here with unusual directness.
For those wishing to use the text to clarify their thinking about decisions, Pearson provides a step-by-step guide.
