Format: Hardcover
This translation by Joseph Adler of Kenyon College provides a facing-page, annotated translation, together with a scholarly introduction and the many charts that accompanied Chu Hsi's original manuscript.
The Introduction to the Study of Changes is one of two written by this great Sung Confucian philosopher on the subject of the I-ching. It was intended as a primer for both study and divination. Its four chapters include Chu's explanations of ways in which yin and yang generate the individual hexagrams, a discussion of the most important charts that presented the hexagrams, and instructions on how to undertake divination with the I-ching. This is the first translation of the work into a Western language.
This is the inaugural publication of the Consortium for Bilingual Texts, which has the goal of producing scholarly, annotated, and reasonably priced translations of Chinese texts in a bilingual format.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered this book in attempt to get a strict translation of the Yi with no interpretation, which it appears to be. Unfortunately the book arrived damaged. The binding and adhesive is almost completely destroyed causing all the pages to fall out. I contacted Amazon and the seller to try and rectify the situation but my emails were never answered. This means I will have to find somewhere to have the book rebound which not only represents an additional expense but a total pain as I have to find a company to bind the book.
