Pressestimmen

As a master of the ' "Changes"', one of China's most influential and yet most perplexing texts, Professor 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. This deeply researched book 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

Idema is the master translator of Chinese popular and religious culture. Here he offers the first English-language translations of enchanting texts, both famous and rare, around one classic story: Zhuangzi's encounter with a skull. The anthology both speaks to universal concerns, and to Chinese literature's unique way of blending religion, philosophy, poetry, and farce.--Vincent Goossaert, Professor of Daoist studies, EPHE, France

"Unearthing the Changes" is a truly wonderful book, masterfully conceived and extremely well-crafted. 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 pre-modern 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

HASH(0x91385b94) von 5 Sternen Avoid The Kindle Edition! 15. Dezember 2014
Von Steven H. Clason - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
My rating is not a criticism of Prof. Shaughnessy's fine scholarship but rather a condemnation of the production values of the Kindle version.

Many of the Chinese characters are illegible, some are rendered in a font that does not increase in size, and footnotes commonly have characters missing, making the Kindle edition very difficult to use for a careful examination of the texts. I own Kindle versions of other Asian texts which display the Chinese very well, so the failure here to produce a usable text doesn't result from a limitation of the technology but from carelessness and disdain for the reader.

I'll continue to count on Shaughnessy's depth and clarity as I've done for many years, but I'll be real careful about buying electronic editions from this publisher in the future. What really bother's me is that there's no way to rate the content and the production separately. The content deserves 5 stars, the production 0.

HASH(0x90e986d8) 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.

HASH(0x91f73a08) 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….

Von Avery - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I find the very idea of giving this book a star rating very silly. Do you want to read transcriptions, translations, and commentaries of newly discovered manuscript variations in the I Ching and an important related text called Guizang? Yes? Well, here you go, this is your book. Shaughnessy is the dean of I Ching scholarship and you will not need another book than this one (there aren't any other books about this anyway). If that's not what you wanted, then, sorry, you must have come to this page by accident. Click on one of the related books and away you go.

HASH(0x90c38c84) von 5 Sternen philisophoser 24. April 2015
Von greeg martensite - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Another phisophoser book with lots of babel and lots of teeny tiny notes. Still important. It proves that most of what was previously handed down is at least close to the original.
