Hamilton, Ont. March 29, 2010The incorrect date of an event this week organized by the Confucius Institute appeared in a recent news release. Correct information appears below.


In Chinese culture, the I-Ching or Book of Changes is one of the oldest of classical Chinese texts. Based on the law of opposites and the practice of accepting change as inevitable, it has been used by the Chinese for centuries to find harmony in their relationships and wealth in their business. As part of the Confucius Institute Distinguished Speakers Series, two free public lectures will discuss how the philosophies of the I-Ching guide decision-making. Both lectures will be presented by Hung-gay Fung, professor of the School of Business Administration at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.


1) April 1: 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., in DeGroote School of Business, Room 505:
I-Ching and Business Leadership.


2) April 1: 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m., in Togo Salmon Hall 719: I-Ching and its relevance to life and Confucianism.
