The I Ching is a book of oracles containing the whole of human experience. Used for divination, it is a method of exploring the unconscious; through the symbolism of its hexagrams we are guided towards the solution of difficult problems and life situations.

It can also be read as a book of wisdom revealing the laws of life to which we must all attune ourselves if we are to live in peace and harmony.

'The I Ching', or 'Book of Changes', a common source for both Confucianist and Taoist philosophy, 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 3,000 years, and interest in it has been rapidly spreading in the West.

From the Publisher:

The Princeton/Bollingen Multimedia I Ching arrives September

The Wilhelm/Baynes edition will take new form with the September release of the CD-ROM version, a full guide to I Ching use and a beautiful re-edition of the classic English translation.

In a stunning rendering, the outdoor Oracle Pavilion and the Ming Library offer a full 3D walkthrough, serving as a spatial guide to the structure and use of the Changes; all is harmonized with a stunning backdrop of natural beauty and gentle narration.

The work contains in multiple forms the full text of the Wilhelm/Baynes edition, plus Hellmut Wilhelm's CHANGE: EIGHT LECTURES ON THE I CHING. Throughout, new animated tours and tools--including a yarrow-stalk tutorial, hexagram indexes, the separate Ten Wings texts, reading storage and printout--will guide you to the deep resources of the disc and the history and interpretation of this world classic of wisdom.

From its beginnings, when sages cut and shuffled its pages, the Book of Changes has waited three thousand years for a medium deep enough to hold it, and responsive enough to adapt the Changes to each user. At last, the world's oldest hypertext finds its home.
