poetic achievements, the matrix within which philosophy arose.

Divination, Order, and the Zhouyi offers an interpretation of the Zhouyi, the 9th century BC divination core of the Book of Change. After presenting the historical background and setting for the creation of the Zhouyi, Richard Gotshalk portrays the type of divination the method was constructed originally to affect, the orderliness of the means it uses, and the order of the world that is presupposed in such a divination. Gotshalk also offers a translation of the Zhouyi, and provides an accompanying commentary to guide understanding. Finally, in an appendix, he discusses the earliest record of the use of the Zhouyi, which reflects some of the early reinterpretations of the work, including the beginning of its construal as a wisdom book.
