    You need "of" after "meaning". I have corrected the title. Please click "Edit Post", add the missing word, then click "Save".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The important part of this definition is the context within which the concept is applied.

    Re: What is the meaning of within which?

    Within which is a way to refer to something which was previously mentioned. In your sentence, within which refers to "the context". Using within which or in which is a way to avoid ending a sentence with a preposition, which some old-fashioned style guides recommend against.

    The sentence could be written this way: The important part of this definition is the context that the concept is applied in.
