Although the I Ching is an ancient Eastern Classic, it contains perspectives and ideas about the social and human situation that western sociologists may use to better understand their world. The I Ching, which is composed of a series of graphic symbols, lends itself to a variety of interpretations. The author argues that viewing the text from a sociological perspective and interpreting the 64 hexagrams as sociopolitical situations of the ancient Chinese Empire are the keys to understanding this complex text. Western sociologists will not only find the striking differences interesting, but also helpful and refreshing.
