Key concepts in Chinese thought and culture constitute the essence of traditional Chinese culture and represent the core values of China. FLTRP has invited distinguished Chinese and international scholars in the fields of philosophy, history, literature, art, and translation to form an editorial board. They have selected 100 such concepts or terms, explained their main content in concise language, plus 1-2 relevant citations in classical Chinese with translations in contemporary Chinese, and translated them (including the citations) into English.
The Book of Songs stimulates the mind，inspires contemplation，enables one to understand society，exchange feelings and thoughts with others，and express resentment.The book guides one on how to support and wait on one's parents at home and how to serve one's sovereign in public life.One can also learn about birds，beasts，and plants from the book.（The Analects）
If works created on the basis of the author's understanding have the value of cognition，his understanding must have been profound.If his feelings are based on recognition，his observation must have been sharp.If certain resentment arises from discussions among a group of people，it must be unforgettable.lf a group of people have come together because they share certain resentment，they must be closely knit.（Wang Fuzhi： Desultory Remarks on Poetry from Ginger Studio）。
