Albert Terrien de la Couperie was a French orientalist, specialising in comparative philology with a particular emphasis between the Chinese characters and the early Akkadian hieroglyphics.
His works suggested that the basis of the Yijing consist of fragmentary notes, chiefly lexical in character, bearing a close resemblance to the syllabaries of Chaldea. His theories were challenged by J. Legge and G. Schlegel, especially his theories of the origins of Chinese civilization, the comparison between Chinese characters, monosyllabic and Chaldean words, polysyllabic, and the Babylonian origins of the sixty year ganzhi cyclical calendar system.
With these cautions in mind, his work remains of interest with regard to suggested interpretations, analysis of material history and Western developments.
This reedition includes the update of 384 transliterated Chinese terms into modern pinyin. The five supplementary annexes are provided to facilitate the reading of the text, including the bibliography and list of over 100 work cited.
