Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Review by:
Philip Metman

This book by Richard Wilhelm's son is a valuable source of additional knowledge for those who are familiar with the I Ching, the Book of Changes, and an imaginative introduction for those who want to acquaint themselves with this difficult classic of Chinese religious literature.

The little volume “consists of lectures given in Peking in the winter of 1943” to “a group of German-speaking people in the city who”—during the time of the Japanese occupation—“kept apart from the activities of the German community and everything connected with it”. Thus, it reflects something of the spirit in which the I Ching itself was completed by King Wên while he was being held captive by the last ruler of the Shang dynasty. The very limited validity of wilfully directed inquisitiveness is pointed out by the warning that the images and symbols of the I Ching should be accepted as they are, “bearing in mind that in the course of our study an explanation may emerge”.
