Intro for a Western mind

This author was recommended by a website. The writing is understandable with enough of the "feel" for you to ease into books with more weight. I liked the layout which gives each hexagram two facing pages. There is a line-by-line "translation" along with a commentary & a judgment. There is a concise historical background of China and the I Ching- absolutely vital to me as an American with no prior knowledge. The authors' view, as stated in the introduction, of the Wilhelm/Baynes translation is "a faithful rendition of the Confucian interpretation as seen through Christian eyes, and reveals little of the I Ching's original meaning" which probably means you won't like this translation if you follow a Confucian philosophy & the Ten Wings annotation.

Difficult Subject. Good scholarship.

One can predict the orbit of Moon with great accuracy - that is the realm of physics, and the first author IS a physicist of considerable repute and distinction. But when it comes to predicting the future in a given human situation, one is left with no widely-accepted way, or a theory. Yet, as the authors recoganize, it remains a human need. Whether nature meets this need, or not, cannot be deciphered by majority opinion. One must experiment with a theory, and see if the theory works. It is in that spirit that this "I Ching" comes to us from the Kerson and Rosemary Huang. The authors have done away with the "ten wings" and added a much smaller wing of their own to some extent. The authors provide the minimal, though sufficient, historical background that is necessary, and here very helpful, to understand and use this ancient tool, this ancient Chineese work called "I Ching," of predicting possibilities in a given human situation. Whether this ancient chineese craft works, or not, must be decided by each individual. Carl Jung apparently used "I Ching," along with night dreams and visions of his subjects ("patients"), to gain knowledge of the relevant human factors and possible actions - or inactions - as suggested by the combination of these diverse elements of the subjective life. For a western reader the question remains: are there information-carrying currents in the universe that can affect seemingly random events, and if yes, does "I Ching" act as an antena to these currents? Experiment, and decide. Huangs' have brought a three-thousand old craft to us in a way that, I think, carries certain poetry of its own, and on the way tell us of how nature may know the left from right and what part "I Ching" played in one physics office at Princeton - where Kerson Hunag was a postdoc then, and C. N. Yang a physicist, a few months away from his Nobel Prize with T. D. Lee.
