    1. These essays enrich the Western reader with new understandings of the I-CHING, they lend light to the proportion in which certain links between images and ideas, symbols and concepts, type, token and thought, observation and incorporation in the world were established and captured in the wings of the I-CHING corpus. Highly commendable to anyone interested in the topic from an academic an poetic perspective.
