In the rapidly changing 21st century, especially in China, the emerging academic interest in the issue of contemporary reading and understanding of classic Chinese texts in PRC is nowadays extremely high. However, because of the lack of further researches there are few works that cover this topic nowadays. This paper covers the ways of reading and understanding Chinese Taoist canons by providing the example of «Daodejing». This study aims to come up with the best possible explanation of the modern version of «Daodejing» that could stay applicable to the Chinese society nowadays. To accomplish this goal, we used both qualitative and quantitative methods and conducted theoretical research on earlier scientific works on this question. Research findings are expected to allow us to utilize data of numerous researches for providing a new piece of work, and, in addition to that, to claim that this issue is not blown out of proportion and is pretty important not only for China but also for all other countries. Keywords: modern social challenges in China, Chinese literature classics, Taoism, Taoist canon, Daoist, Daodejing, Laozi.
