There is a new movie available on Amazon – Wisdom of Changes: Richard Wilhem and the I Ching – which explores the life and work of the German sinologist Richard Wilhelm. Wilhelm went to China at the turn of the century as a missionary but fell in love with Chinese philosophy. He brought this wisdom to the West by translating many Chinese works into German. Since, many have been translated into English and other languages. Wilhelm’s most well known translations are the I Ching and The Secret of the Golden Flower. Carl Jung, the Swiss psychologist, was a personal friend of Wilhelm and wrote the forward for I Ching and a commentary for The Secret of the Golden Flower.
