This article provides reflections on Daoist studies methodology, try to re-think the analysis of Daoism through the lens of 'religion.' Such an approach is limiting because it overlooks the practice of Daoism and how it manifests in various forms were incorporated under the umbrella of 'Daoism. The author thus applies the views of ＂situated knowledge＂ to the fields of Daoist studies. Daoist scholars inevitably seek the balance between aspects of Daoist studies as an independent field and as an open field of cross discipline. One the one hand, scholars try to establish Daoist Studies as an academic field. On the other hand, only when we view Daoism through the context of interactions and mutually creative activities in Chinese religions can we better understand the Daoist culture. Through multi academic activities on Daoist studies, the depiction of Daoism can be more nuanced and we can reach a better representation of dynamic phenomenon.
