Abstract: The word "freedom" does not appear in Lao Zi's Tao Te Ching, but the ideas expressed in the book all imply Lao Zi's pursuit of freedom, and the essence of this freedom refers to the absence of any external coercion and oppression, so this article will elaborate on Lao Tzu's view of freedom from three aspects: natural, doing nothing, and worthless.
