In: Rethinking the 1898 Reform Period
Author: Tze-Ki Hon

In this article, I analyze Wang Bi’s (226–249) essays in General Comments on the Changes of the Zhou (Zhouyi Lueli 《周易略例》). I argue that these essays reveal Wang Bi’s unique approach to finding hope and certainty in an ever-changing world. Taking trigrams and hexagrams as symbols of forces that shape our life, Wang Bi creates a philosophical framework that includes two components: (1) a dynamic ontology that stresses the codependence of part and whole, and (2) an attitude of life that views contingency as a reinvigorating force rather than a devastating force.
