Classical Chinese Combinatorics: Derivation of the Book of Changes Hexagram Sequence By Richard S Cook
Paperback: $64.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
The first and most enigmatic of the Chinese classics is the Book of Changes, and the reasoning behind its binary hexagram sequence remained an unsolved mystery for some 3,000 years (according to the... More > tradition ascribing it to King Wen of Zhou, d. -11th c.). This Monograph resolves the classical enigma: Richard Cook provides a comprehensive analysis of the hexagram sequence, showing that its classification of binary sequences demonstrates knowledge of the convergence of certain linear recurrence sequences (LRS; Pingala -5th c.?, Fibonacci 1202) to division in extreme and mean ratio (DEMR, the “Golden Section” irrational; Pythagoras -6th c.?, Euclid -4th c.). It is shown that the complex hexagram sequence encapsulates a careful and ingenious demonstration of the LRS/DEMR relation, that this knowledge results from general combinatorial analysis, and is reflected in elements emphasized in ancient Chinese and Western mathematical traditions.< Less

Paperback: $24.99

Joseph Edkins was a British Protestant missionary who spent 57 years in China. He was a Sinologue, a linguist, a translator, and a philologist specialized in Chinese religions. His work suggests that... More > the hexagrams are the vehicle for the expression of a philosophy, the characters became the basis of the national literature and the names repositories of ideas springing out of the dual philosophy of yin and yang. From there, the philosophy of two contrasted elements in a single antithesis expanded itself into the system of the five elements. A philosophy whose symbols were linear became a philosophy whose symbols were circular and linear. Mr. Edkins provides in these few essays a fascinating approach that reminds that of Iulian Shchutskii's Researches on the I Ching (1979) and benefits to be read along with the analyzis of Terrien de la Couperie's The Yijing (1892).

His works... More > suggested that the basis of the Yijing consist of fragmentary notes, chiefly lexical in character, bearing a close resemblance to the syllabaries of Chaldea. His theories were challenged by J. Legge and G. Schlegel, especially his theories of the origins of Chinese civilization, the comparison between Chinese characters, monosyllabic and Chaldean words, polysyllabic, and the Babylonian origins of the sixty year ganzhi cyclical calendar system. With these cautions in mind, his work remains of interest with regard to suggested interpretations, analysis of material history and Western developments. ISBN-13: 978-1-944175-09-2< Less

Hexagrammatics: Rules and Properties In Binary Sequences By Larry Schulz
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Of the 64! possible sequences in which the Yijing's binary figures--"hexagrams"--could be arranged, only a few have been consistently agreed upon as "meaningful." The author... More > earlier applied a "consolidated view" filter to identify structural elements in the Yijing sequence [Schulz, 2011]. Another ordering strategy, devised in the 11th century, was incorporated into the textbook editions of the Yijing thereafter. In one of the great confluences of history this graphic found its way to the German mathematician Leibniz and confirmed his belief in the legitimacy of the binary number system. Comparing elements of those two hexagram orders, the monograph extracts the properties of individual figures and grammatical rules of their placement and successfully tests them against another binary sequence. The implication is that this grammar reflects something of the manner in which the brain's binary information processing structure organizes sensory input into affective content.< Less

More > and beauty, something that derived from her painstaking devotion to good craftsmanship and her natural genius for language. The themes she covered were wide-ranging, though the largest body of her work deals with Greece and, in particular, the island of Hydra. In a real sense, in spite of her American citizenship and her use of the English language as a tool for her poetic craft, it might easily be argued that she is one of the great Greek poets of this age, if we define Greek poetry as poetry by a poet living in Greece, in love with Greece, and dealing with Greek themes.< Less
