A Textbook of Integrity: A Contemporary Commentary on the I Ching
May 14, 1999 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The I Ching is an oracular book which has been used for divination in China for at least 3000 years. Although it has shamanic roots and Taoist content, the I Ching is one of the foundations of Confucian philosophy, which places emphasis on the correct handling of situations. In the West, students of C.G. Jung’s psychology have turned to the I Ching when an archetypal issue demands an ethical standpoint. In this lecture, Dr. Beebe will relate the philosophy underlying this ancient text to the psychology of integrity that has been developing for Jungian analysis.
