Excerpt from A Brief History, of Early Chinese Philosophy

A tolerably authentic history of Chinese civilization dates back as early as three thousand years before the Christian era, when the Three Rulers and the Five Kings began to govern well-settled communities along the Yellow River. The "Shu Ching," one of the oldest books extant in China, contains among others some important documents issued by Yao and Shun, whose imperial reigns flourished presumably in the twenty-fourth century before Christ. Those documents furnish us with some interesting religious material, shedding light on the early Chinese conception of Nature, which, with only slight modifications, is still prevalent at the present day.
