The classic of changes : a new translation of the I Ching as interpreted by Wang Bi by Richard John Lynn( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first new translation of this work to appear in more than twenty-five years, the Columbia I Ching presents the classic book of changes for the world of today. Used in China as a book of divination and source of wisdom for more than three thousand years by scholars and general readers alike, it has influenced Western intellectuals and artists from Carl Jung to John Cage, bringing this most important work of the Confucian canon immense popular appeal. Finally, after decades of inaccurate translations and outdated, expurgated pocket editions, here is an I Ching that catches up with its readers. Richard Lynn's introduction explains the organization of The Classic of Changes through the history of its various parts, and describes how the text was and is still used as a manual of divination with both the stalk and coin methods. For the fortune-telling initiate, he provides a chart of trigrams and hexagrams; an index of terms, names, and concepts; a glossary and bibliography; and thoughts on his method of translation. Lynn presents for the first time in English the fascinating commentary of Wang Bi (226-249), who was the principal definer of the work for some seven hundred years. Wang Bi interpreted the I Ching as a book of moral and political wisdom, arguing that the text should not be read literally, but rather as an expression of abstract ideas. Lynn places Wang Bi's commentary in historical context and examines the interpretation of this common source for both Confucian and Taoist philosophy before and after Wang Bi's time. Columbia's I Ching offers devotees the most authoritative and lucid translation they have yet to encounter, while giving first-time readers the chance to consult afascinating and important Chinese work. The Classic of Changes will be the new standard for years to come
The classic of the way and virtue : a new translation of the Tao-te ching of Laozi as interpreted by Wang Bi by Laozi( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard John Lynn presents here a translation of the Tao-te ching written especially for English-language readers." "Like his I Ching, this volume includes the interpretive commentary of the third-century scholar Wang Bi (226-249), who wrote the first and most sophisticated commentary on the Tao-te ching. Lynn's critical introduction explores the centrality of Wang's commentaries in Chinese thought, his major contributions to Chinese philosophy, his short but brilliant life, and the era in which he lived, as well as the position of the Tao-te ching in East Asian traditions." "Consisting of eighty-one short aphoristic sections, the Tao-te ching presents a complete view of how the sage rules in accordance with the spontaneous ways of the natural world. Although the work was originally designed to provide advice to the ruler, its teachings are considered tools for living and self-cultivation, applicable to anyone. Wang Bi's commentaries, following each statement, allow modern Western readers to encounter the Tao-te ching in the way that Chinese readers have for more than seventeen centuries - as a religious text and a philosophy of life."--Jacket
