Five Classics of Fengshui PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Five Classics of Fengshui free pdf Michael Paton traces the theoretical development of this form of spiritual geography through full translations of major texts, including 'Burial Classic of Qing Wu' and 'Yellow Emperor's Classic of House Siting'. This theoretical development is analysed through the lens of history, philosophy and sociology of science in an attempt to address Joseph Needham's conundrum of the 'great beauty of the siting' in traditional China being based of such a 'grossly superstitious system' and to understand what part fengshui played in the environmental history of China.
