Included with the app!

Gregory C. Richter (Truman State University, Kirksville, Missouri) has taught linguistics, German, Russian, Latin, French, and Chinese. Originally from California, he earned a Ph.D. in Linguistics at the University of California, San Diego (1983). He has previously translated poetry in Icelandic and French, psychoanalytic works in German, and Buddhist scriptures in Tocharian. His translations from Chinese include a rendering of the Tao Te Ching (The Gate of All Marvelous Things: A Guide to Reading the Tao Te Ching, Red Mansions Publishing, 1998, distributed by China Books, San Francisco). Unlike other versions, the central aim of this rendering of the I Ching has been to supply a literal English translation for each Chinese character. Also provided are the contemporary standard pronunciation for each character and a clear English translation.
