‘Wisdom of Changes’ is a film about Richard Wilhelm, the acclaimed translator of the I Ching. It is a documentary made by his granddaughter Bettina, whose father was Wilhelm’s youngest son. The importance of Wilhelm, both for the West’s understanding of the breadth and depth of Chinese wisdom, as well as his profound influence on C. G. Jung, cannot be underestimated. From the cover of the DVD:
Richard Wilhelm (1873-1930) is regarded as the European who discovered China’s spiritual world. ‘Wisdom of Changes’ is a documentary film about the life and work of the most distinguished translator and mediator of classical Chinese culture to the West. Like C. G. Jung, with whom he was friends from the 1920s, Richard Wilhelm went in search of the universal wisdoms of mankind, those that resist the changes of history.
The voice of Richard Wilhelm: Jonathan Pryce.
