About this product
Presupposing no prior background in Judaism or philosophy, this text surveys the history of Jewish Philosophy, from the formation of the Hebrew Scriptures to the modern age. It is intended to be used with courses in Jewish philosophy, as well as with more general courses in religious thought, Judaism and philosophy. In reading over some of the reader's reviews, two points appear very much in need of clarification, namely, the nature of the Chinese calendar (upon which the Chinese astrological and compass methods in my books are based) and whether or not my books are just for beginners.
There are two Chinese calendars. One is Solar and one is Lunar. Both are combined in the "Li Shu," or astrological ephemeris. The Solar calendar, upon which 9-Star astrology is based, begins every year on about February 4th, i.e. 15 degrees Aquarius (the mid-point between Winter Solstice and Vernal Equinox). The Lunar calendar, upon which the Ba Tzu astrology is based, always begins on the 2nd New Moon after the Winter Solstice. Both systems are clearly described in my books, 9 Star in my first two books, Ba Tzu in my third. My astrological, and therefore calendrical, calculations are absolutely correct.
As to whether my books are for beginners or not, they are, indeed, for beginners, but they are for advanced students as well. They go as far as any book in a non-Chinese language can possibly go without going into nonsense. There are, of course, more advanced techniques, but the interested student must undergo personal training in order to learn them. I privately teach the most advanced classical fengshui techniques, which include the complete Ba Tzu astrological system with its Lo Pan compass methods. To learn these, the student has to first to learn a basic set of no fewer than about 50 Chinese characters in order to read, and make calculations with, the Li Shu, and so forth. Notwithstanding, what is in my books works very well. My books are 100% traditional, straight forward and designed as step-by-step manuals. If you use them, you will get very positive results.
