The Philosophy of the I Ching by Carol K. Anthony

2nd Edition Expanded and Revised
224 pages, paperback, 5-1/2 x 8-1/2

About this book
A companion book to A Guide to the I Ching, this book on the philosophy embedded in the I Ching remains a steady backlist favorite. It helps us understand and apply that philosophy to our daily lives.

The book explains terms such as “the Sage,” the Cosmic teacher that answers when we consult the I Ching, “the superior man,” as referring to “the true self,” and “the inferior man,” in referring to “the ego.”

The book also reveals the core philosophical concepts that have made the I Ching the Number One book in the Chinese Library for over 3000 years. It makes us aware that these concepts are the wellspring of wisdom from which both Confucianism and philosophical Taoism developed. Thus, the book brings us an understanding of the roots of Chinese culture.

Added to the second edition is the new and highly precise method for clarifying the messages received from the I Ching oracle.


Very Beneficial
This is another outstanding achievement along with Ms. Anthony's "A Guide to the I Ching". Carol K. Anthony's work can make a genuine claim to greatness and demonstrates astounding wisdom and insight. These two books provide a bridge between the Wilhelm\Baynes I Ching and the modern world. They also grant us an opportunity to reliably access the hidden world of the Sage. In fact they seem to speak with the the authority of the Sage itself. With these three books and a devoted attitude I believe the highest realisations could be experienced. What more do I need to say? — Leigh Glanville, U.K.

A Classic
One could not recommend this book highly enough. It is meant to be a companion to Wilhelm's "I Ching" and sheds light on the obscure terms that sometimes get in the way for the right internalization of this wonderful book's teachings. It is also an inspiring guide on how to live well, grounded on lofty, yet sensible values. A book you'll turn to many times in your life. — Carol H., Switzerland
