The Classic of Changes in Cultural Context: A Textual Archaeology of the Yi jing by Scott Davis

This highly unique study focuses on the archaic core of the Classic of Changes and proposes a structural anthropological analysis for two reasons. First, unlike many treatments of the Yi jing, there is a concern to place the text carefully in the context of the ancient culture which created it. Second, the approach differs from traditional exegesis which did not and ultimately could not address problems of textual understanding in a holistic sense. This book is not a translation of the Classic of Changes; it is a careful interpretation, or rather method of exploration, of the connectivities and topography of the text as a whole.
