Chapter Summary

In the relatively brief history of Chinese myth research, scholars first wondered whether Chinese creation and origin myths existed at all, and if so, how to define and classify them. Editors have worked on translating, polishing and editing the original papers, and were happy to include three insightful and erudite essays: Kristofer Schipper and Wu Bing'an, were not there at the time, but their work perfectly fits the aims of the symposium, and contributes to making this book into an unusual and unique collectio.The unflagging support of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, for their material contribution to this project, without which this book would never have been born,is acnowledged.

Keywords: China"s Creation; China's Creation; Chinese; Kristoffer Schiffer; Origin Myths; Royal Netherland'sAcademy of Social Sciences; Wu Bing'an
