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.
