A New Interpretation of the Traditional Ethnic Rational Spirit Presented by Ancient Chinese Myths

Xiaoyu Wang

Abstract—Ancient Chinese myths are the source of Chinese culture, contain the emotions and thoughts shared by the Chinese nation, and embody the spiritual soul of the Chinese nation. Ancient Chinese mythology is deeply rooted in China's long-standing cultural soil. It is a unique myth that grew up in China, and it permeates the light of oriental wisdom. Purposefully and selectively inheriting the precious spiritual cultural heritage in mythology has positive practical significance for us.
The content of ancient Chinese myths is rich and allencompassing. The main feature is that it advocates reason and morality, and emphasizes ethics. It conveys the spirit of dedication, fighting and struggle of the primitive people in the confrontation with the natural and social environment. This kind of spirit allows people to draw strength and courage from it, so that human beings can go through all kinds of difficulties and come to today with a smile. This paper mainly uses the method of literature analysis to excavate and sort out the salient features of the concept of rationality in ancient Chinese mythology, try to judge and reflect on ancient mythology with today's value and vision, and provide theoretical and practical support for the promotion of our country's traditional culture and national spirit and historical references.

Index Terms—Ancient mythology, dedication, rationality, struggle spirit.
