kemonotachi no yoru

Quick Question for People...

Does anyone know where I can find a listing of various ancient Chinese philosophies / theories like that of the five elements? Preferably in English? Ep 23 is giving me a serious run for my brain and the brain is starting to lose. >.<; Any help would be most appreciated. ^^;

And still need more help... ^^;

Thanks for your help everyone! I've been working my way through everything and have found myself on a *Chinese* page now that seems to be what's being quoted. But since I don't read Chinese... ^^; This is the page from the "Book of History" or the "Classic of History":

As near as I can tell, they're quoting the section names from #5-#13. Can anyone help me find the English equivalents for these names?

ex. #5 Kouhan (Japanese pronunciation): 1, Five Elements
#6 Kouhan: 2, Five Happenings? etc.

Can anyone help me with this? Especially needed are #9, 11, and 12. >_<; TIA! ^__^
