Taoism: Further Research

A guide for the study of Taoism



Although there are many sources for the study of Daoism in English the major centers for the study of Daoism are in France and Japan. As might be noted from some of the recommended sources, a reading knowledge of French may be useful for the deeper (graduate level and beyond) study of Daoism. For primary texts Chinese is essential, and for secondary texts French and Japanese are perhaps the most useful.
