Literary and Philosophical References

  • The Tao Te Ching doesn't give us any specific shout-outs to other philosophical texts, but it's important to think about the fact that this book is a collection of wisdom that was passed down from waaaay back in the day. Specific philosophers don't get name-dropped, but every time the TTC mentions "the sages" it's giving the ancients a shout-out across time.
