In a bookstore, Daoist books are often put under the category of spirituality. To the extent that ethics is about how to live one's life, Daoism, is surely a form of ethics. However, it is not immediately clear whether, and if so, how, Daoism conveys any clear ethical argument or theory. Readers of the two classics of philosophical Daoism, the Laozi and the Zhuangzi, may end up questioning whether it is desirable or even possible to build an ethical theory based on them.
