Eastern philosophies addressing education (including Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism) focus on virtue and wisdom instead of wealth, prominence, and status. Because of this, these philosophies align well with many of the contemporary ideas related to humanistic ideals, holistic views, inter-disciplinary instruction, and constructivist education. Of the eightyone chapters in the Tao, this essay focuses on eleven that not only give an overall impression of the Tao’s philosophy but also show how it best relates to contemporary educational issues. The chapters of the Tao are first discussed as they directly relate to Taoism, then they are specifically connected to the field of education
