Laozi (Lao-tzu, in “Wade-Giles” romanization) flourished during the sixth century B.C.E. and was the “founder” of Daoism, according to Chinese tradition. According to some modern scholars, however, Laozi is entirely legendary; there was never an historical Laozi. Daoism appears as a school of philosophy ( daojia ) as well as a religious tradition ( daojiao ); in the latter, Laozi is revered as a supreme deity. The name “Laozi” is best taken to mean “Old ( lao ) Master ( zi ),” and Laozi the ancient philosopher is said to have written a short book, which has come to be called simply the Laozi . When the Laozi was recognized as a “classic” ( jing ) -- that is, a work of such profound insight as to merit canonical status -- it acquired a more exalted and hermeneutically instructive title, the Daodejing ( Tao-te ching ), commonly translated as the “Classic of the Way and Virtue.” Its influence on Chinese culture is pervasive, and it reaches beyond China.
