I Ching - 易经

As legend has it, the wise Fu-Hsi taught Chinese soothsayers the art of I Ching interpretation around 3000 BC; however, there is no way to prove that claim. What we know, though, is that sometime before 1000 BC, King Wen and his son, Duke Tcheou, codified and wrote comments in a corpus known as the I Ching (translated as The Book of Changes), whose origin even in the past. Confucius himself, a few centuries later, wrote about an I Ching, not so dissimilar from the one we know today, commentaries which have survived to this day.
