Riassunto: This edition of the ancient chinese oracle, "I Ching', was inspired by Jung's insights into the psyche and is the work of more than 60 years of research. It present the oracualr core of the 'I ching' as a psychological tool- the symbols interact wity our minds as dream images do. This new translation gives each Chinese ideogram the corresponding English word ('core word') which becomes a key to identify the ideogram. Each 'core word' is placed in the context of a 'field of meaning' and the reader chooses the images that most closely resonate with his or her situation and the question that is brought to the oracle. For the first time, Western readers can consult the 'I Ching' in its original purity, without the translator's personal interpretations and accumulated layers of philosophical commentary.
From Publishers Weekly:
Dilettantes who are seeking a brief, basic introduction to the I Ching, the classic text of Chinese divination, will want to look elsewhere. At more than 850 pages, with numerous annotations and highly technical explanations about textual divergences and linguistic issues, this is not for the beginner. Novices will be lost in the precise and specialized discussions of hexagrams, outer and inner trigrams, and transforming lines. However, readers who have already dipped their toes into the I Ching (which is usually translated as the Classic of Change) will relish this sophisticated and detailed full translation, produced under the auspices of the Eranos Foundation, a Swiss think tank. It offers what may be the first-ever complete concordance of the text, an index of sorts to every appearance of every character-or "core word"-used in the entire document. This will prove useful to serious students of Chinese spirituality, and to those who want to not only read the I Ching but to use it as a textbook for the practice of divination. To this end, the editors include advice on "interrogating the oracle," or using the text to obtain answers to specific questions or guidance on a decision. The book's design is also a plus, with bold reds punctuating a layout that is rich in tables and illustrations.
