Yin Yang in Classical Texts (9781872468433)
Publisher: Monkey Press
Along with the concept of qi, an understanding of yin yang helps us to penetrate the Chinese mind and to understand the world view which lies behind classical Chinese thinking. It is a world view quite different from that of the modern West. It speaks of relationship, mutual resonance, constant change and transformation. And yin yang is that which underpins this inter-relationship and co-dependence, giving the fundamental rules for life and the possibility of living in harmony with nature.
Yin Yang from the Classical Texts is an edited transcript of two seminars given in 2005 in London. Chinese characters are included throughout the text to clarify the meaning of key terms. Where appropriate, the ideograms are explained in detail.
