Cultural contrasts between Chinese and Western flood legends from an intercultural perspective
Affiliation, Shaanxi University of Chinese Medicine, Xi’an, China
Flood is a natural disaster that threatens the safety of people's lives and property, and there are myths and legends related to flood disasters in China and abroad. The Noah's Ark is one of the most famous stories in the Bible in the West, and the story of Yu the Great Harnesses the Flood is a well-known story in China. By comparing the story of Noah's Ark and Yu the Great Harnesses the Flood, this paper explores the deep cultural differences between China and the West, so as to understand and tolerate each other in intercultural communication and reduce unnecessary cultural conflicts.
