Total I Ching
By

Rating
New or Used: $28.95
The I Ching (pronounced ee-ching) is the oldest and most respected oracle or divinatory system in the world. There are currently two translations available which offer somewhat conflicting interpretations - the popular Confucian version and an earlier Taoist version called Zhouyi. Reconstructed by twentieth-century scholars and archaeologists, Zhouyi presents the highly imaginative world of myth and ritual that is the hidden base of thousands of years of Eastern thought. Now, for the first time ever, Stephen Karcher fuses these two traditions using modern scholarship and archaeological and linguistic research, along with a wide background in Eastern philosophy and comparative religion, and presents them to the modern Western reader in a comprehensive and accessible new form. TOTAL I CHING is a complete oracle with instruction for immediate use in all life situations, but is also the first translation to detail the mythology of the divinatory system, offering a revolutionary new approach to the world's oldest wisdom tradition.

Reviews

'This could be Karcher's masterpiece - a beautiful, liberating, potent and inspiring version of the ancient classic. Working with the original Chinese texts and drawing on the most recent scholarship, Karcher shatters the constricting cage of traditional interpretations to open up the oracle's lost mythic dimension. Even experienced users of the I Ching will be astonished by the extraordinary riches they will find in Total I Ching' Dr Roderick Main, Lecturer in Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex
