2. Mai 2014 Translations from the Asian Classics
In recent years, three ancient manuscripts relating to the Yi jing ( I Ching), or Classic of Changes, have been discovered. The earliest -- the Shanghai Museum Zhou Yi -- dates to about 300 B.C.E. and shows evidence of the text's original circulation. The Guicang, or Returning to Be Stored, reflects another ancient Chinese divination tradition based on hexagrams similar to those of the Yi jing. In 1993, two manuscripts were found in a third-century B.C.E. tomb at Wangjiatai that contain almost exact parallels to the Guicang's early quotations, supplying new information on the performance of early Chinese divination. Finally, the Fuyang Zhou Yi was excavated from the tomb of Xia Hou Zao, lord of Ruyin, who died in 165 B.C.E. Each line of this classic is followed by one or more generic prognostications similar to phrases found in the Yi jing, indicating exciting new ways the text was produced and used in the interpretation of divinations. Unearthing the Changes details the discovery and significance of the Shanghai Museum Zhou Yi, the Wangjiatai Guicang, and the Fuyang Zhou Yi, including full translations of the texts and additional evidence constructing a new narrative of the Yi jing's writing and transmission in the first millennium B.C.E. An introduction situates the role of archaeology in the modern attempt to understand the Classic of Changes. By showing how the text emerged out of a popular tradition of divination, these newly unearthed manuscripts reveal an important religious dimension to its evolution.

A truly wonderful book, masterfully conceived and extremely well crafted. Edward L. Shaughnessy demonstrates once again why he is, among all Western scholars, the premier translator and interpreter of the early history of what became the Classic of Changes -- arguably the most important single work in all of premodern Chinese history. -- Richard J. Smith, author of The I Ching: A Biography Shaughnessy has written the definitive account of these materials. Nothing like it exists, in any language. Closely argued, and drawing on an impeccable control of the literature, this study re-forms our understanding of how and what the Yijing might have been. -- Kidder Smith, Bowdoin College In his skillful presentation of three groups of bamboo-strip manuscripts discovered in China since the 1970s, Shaughnessy gives new meaning and pleasure to reading one of the two oldest works of Chinese literature, the Classic of Changes. These manuscripts bring to life the significance of divination in early Chinese culture, while remaking our understanding of the ' Changes.' -- Donald Harper, University of Chicago As a master of the ' Changes,' one of China's most influential and yet most perplexing texts, Shaughnessy presents specialist scholars and students with an admirably clear account of the difficulties of interpretation and a comprehensive review of recently found manuscript copies of the book. His deeply researched text breaks new ground for the study of Chinese manuscripts and China's methods of divination, with penetrating contributions to the scholarly handling of fragments, the recovery of lost literature, and the problems of textual criticism. -- Michael Loewe, University of Cambridge Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Changes in the "Changes" 29. Juli 2014
Von E. N. Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Dr. Shaughnessy is pretty much THE authority, in the English-speaking world at least, on the Book of Changes and its comvoluted history and meaning. This book presents translations of long-lost versions of it that have turned up in tombs in the last few decades. More amazing is the appearance, in the tomb of a man who was apparently a diviner, of the Gui Cang, a Changes-type oracle book lost since the Han Dynasty and known only from a few quotations (which, happily, turn out to have been accurate).
Quite apart from the value of the book, it is a delight because Dr. Shaughnessy is such a disarmingly good and clear writer. One finds oneself hanging on every word about the various permutations of an obscure character in the highly fluid, evolving script of pre-Han China.
As a member of the now rapidly diminishing band of ex-hippies who grew up with the old Wilhelm-Baynes translation of the "received" form of the Changes, I have some nostalgia as I read. Carl Jung wrote an introduction for the Wilhelm book--a typically Jungian mix of brilliant insight and wild, woolly speculation (and none the worse for that). I wish a Jung-like figure would emerge to do as much for the newly recovered versions.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fascinating history on how received Yijing evolved from ancient Guicang! 19. Mai 2014
Von T. Sutanto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
It’s all about linage, as follows; Xia’s Lian Shan evolved into Shang’s Guicang, Shang’s Guicang evolved into Zhou’s Yi, Zhou’s Yi evolved into known received Yijing and by the effort of our modern time confusianists, received Yijing evolved again into what we known as the philosophy of Yi.

From above perspective, this book was confirming this evolution of Yi, at least from Shang’s Gui Cang to Han era Yijing, based on facts and told in a very fascinating way. What surprised me was this; Gui Cang text have less words, that make me assumed Gui Cang was simpler than Han era Yijing and even more simpler than received Yijing comparatively.

Unfortunately, this book didn’t tell us background of such evolutions which related with successions of historic ancient Chinese dynasties, didn’t tell us about impacts of such evolutions in ancient Chinese cultures and also didn’t tell us how ancient peoples used it in their ancient daily routines.

But it is hard to let unnoticed this book’s comparative study especially for peoples who interested in the history of eastern philosophy and because of that, the book should be four stars-ed….
