Notes

Abstract: This paper is an attempt to implement an iconoclastic, relativist take on metacritical theory into a critical history of the Yijing. The basis of this approach is the work of Stanley Fish's idea that the meanings of a work are effectively created by the readers themselves, rather than existing wholly formed in the text to be found by the eager critical reader. In moderation, this provides a powerful way to analyze a text such as the Yijing, which has been the subject of wildly varying interpretations over the 2,800 years since its composition. It provides a framework for explaining why there can be such divergent interpretations arising from the same set of characters. This can then be used to construct a new kind of critical history of the ways in which the Yijing has been read over its history, one which differentiates the viewpoint of the author of the historical survey. Five divergent ways of reading the Yijing are examined: the Modern Scholars, the Confucian commentators, Wang Bi, Chi-hsu Ou-i, and the author's own viewpoint.
