Margaret Pearson '65 talks about her new book, The Original I Ching: An Authentic Translation of the Book of Changes. Pearson had been a professor of Chinese and Japanese history at Skidmore College for more than 25 years before her retirement. The Original I Ching: An Authentic Translation of the Book of Changes is based on 15 years of research and writing. She feels the I Ching is relevant today in decision-making—not as a way to predict the future but rather as a method for looking at a challenge in a different way. Pearson argues her translation is the closet to the original and much more meaningful for women than previous translations. Also, in the video, she demonstrates exactly how to use the book, with the help of Jane Falla, assistant editor of the Smith Alumnae Quarterly.
