Abstract

I Ching, also translated as Yijing or The Changes, is a work on the “law of change” that is universally applicable to the natural world and human society. It originated from China but belongs to all the human kind. It is a treasure to the world civilization and is still valuable to all walks of life. The philosophy of I Ching’s Kun Hexagram is used to analyze the fate of two literary characters: Macbeth and ZHUGE Liang. Macbeth’s collapse of nice fame and good fortune lies in his dashing out of the way of a subordinate in his “top-yin” period; by contrast, ZHUGE Liang’s integrity and prosperity lies in his humility from his “first-yin” period to the “top-yin” period.
