אי צ'ינג ספר התמורות: Or, Book of Changes
Cary F. Baynes
Princeton University Press, 1967 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 740 pages
'The I Ching, or Book of Changes' is one of the first efforts of the human mind to place itself within the universe. It has exerted a living influence in China for three thousand years, and interest in it has been spreading in the West. First set down in the dawn of history as a book of oracles, the Book of Changes deepened in meaning when ethical values were attached to the oracular pronouncements; it became a book of wisdom, eventually one of the Five Classics of Confucianism, and provided the common source for both Confucianist and Taoist philosophy.

Written before WWII so references to societies - Europe and China - are interesting. This is basically a cook book but the amplifications are very interesting psychologically. A discussion of how the way applies to artists is very interesting. Read full review
