(Note: If you use Firefox, you already have these features. If you use Safari, stay tuned — you’ll be getting the same features soon.) Previously, when Zotero’s Chrome extension found high-quality data to save on a webpage, it would display an icon in the Chrome address bar. For webpages where it couldn’t detect any data, you could right-click on the page and choose “Save Page to Zotero” to add a basic webpage item and snapshot to Zotero. In the latest version of the Chrome extension, it’s now possible to save any page to Zotero with a new, permanent button in the Chrome toolbar: When high-quality data is available, the new button will show the same icon as before: newspaper, journal article, folder, etc.

In addition to combining the existing save functionality into a single button, the updated Chrome extension adds two new features previously available only in Firefox: Taoism.

The Center of Traditional Taoist Studies

Taoism is both a religion and philosophy with roots extending to ancient shamanism. It is codified in the Tao Te Ching, history's second most translated book after Christianity's Holy Bible. Its eighty-one poems were written in 500BC by the Sage, Lao Tzu. Interest in the Tao Te Ching has remained largely unfulfilled due to its mysterious interpretations, often contradictory and sometimes bizarre. Daoist Philosophy.

Along with Confucianism, “Daoism” (sometimes called “Taoism“) is one of the two great indigenous philosophical traditions of China.

Daoist Philosophy

As an English term, Daoism corresponds to both Daojia (“Dao family” or “school of the Dao”), an early Han dynasty (c. 100s B.C.E.) term which describes so-called “philosophical” texts and thinkers such as Laozi and Zhuangzi, and Daojiao (“teaching of the Dao”), which describes various so-called “religious” movements dating from the late Han dynasty (c. 100s C.E.) onward. Thus, “Daoism” encompasses thought and practice that sometimes are viewed as “philosophical,” as “religious,” or as a combination of both. While modern scholars, especially those in the West, have been preoccupied with classifying Daoist material as either “philosophical” or “religious,” historically Daoists themselves have been uninterested in such categories and dichotomies.
