This book is a review of the concept of the Ba-Gua theory in Chinese classical philosophy, and an attempt to rationalize, analyze and evaluate its meaning and significance in the Chinese culture. While it is quite clear that there is a scholarly internal consistency and mathematical brilliance to the various elements of the Ba-Gua theory, there is also plenty of mumbo jumbo and mysticism in the formulation of this theory. It is the purpose of this book to provide an objective evaluation of the various elements of Ba-Gua, its relation to the famous Chinese classic “I-Ching”, and the significant impact of Ba-Gua on Chinese culture, philosophy and thinking, based on well-established historical texts and archaeological evidence. The author also advanced a new theory about how the 64 hexagrams of I-Ching were created in Chinese prehistory.
