Chinese characters are ideographic characters. In the process of creation and development of Chinese characters, they are influenced by the culture of that time. Therefore, Chinese characters contain rich cultural information. The culture of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) also has a certain influence on the creation and development of Chinese characters. Therefore, Chinese characters related to TCM contain certain cultural information of TCM. Through the analysis of individual Chinese character’s glyphs, the glyphs of Chinese character groups and the historical development of Chinese character’s glyphs, we can interpret the cultural information of TCM. However, we should pay attention to the following four aspects when analyzing culture through Chinese character: strictly distinguishing the concept of Chinese characters and Chinese language, scientifically analyzing Chinese character’s glyphs, attaching importance to multiple evidences to prove each other, and avoiding over interpretation.
