Ask a question about this product

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.
