Fu Hsi


Fu Hsi or Fuxi (伏羲; pinyin f? xī; Pao-hsi) was the mythical First sovereign of ancient China. He is the culture hero reputed to be the inventor of writing, fishing and trapping. There is no archaeological or reliable historiographical evidence for his existence at all. However, many traditional dictionaries or out-dated sources give dates for his existence:

  • 29th century BC|2852 BC by Wing-tsit Chan (Chan, Wing-tsit, ed. and trans., A Source Book in Chinese Philosophy NJ: Princeton University Press: 1963.)

  • 34th century BC|3322 BC by James Legge (Van Over, Raymond: Editor The I CHING. New York: Mentor Books: 1971.)

The Yi Jing is attributed to his reading of the Ho Map, also known as The Yellow River Map.
