I Ching, Hardback (October 2015)View all books by David Hinton
In a new translation and interpretation of the I Ching, David Hinton strips this ancient Chinese masterwork of the usual apparatus and discovers a deeply poetic and philosophical text. Teasing out an elegant vision of the cosmos as ever changing yet harmonious, Hinton reveals the seed from which Chinese philosophy, poetry and painting grew.
