Summary/Abstract: In the article the main points of mythological-philosophical idea of creation in terms of old Chinese philoposphical text are discussed. The underlying premise of considerations is that Chinese text represents a specific kind of philosophy. This philosophy doesn’t realize a transition from myth to logos but rather develops within the frame of mythology. It is one of the most successful attempts for theoretical representation of basic myhological ideas. That’s way we may compare how it and different world myhologies express one of the fundamental mythological ideas – the idea of creation. Comparison shows not only similarities but also differences, especially in the language. The language of Chinese text combines simplicity and profundity. It allows different kinds of reading and is one of the most appropiate ways to express peculiarities of mythological tupe of thiniking.
