 Laozi
The earliest strand revolved around the meeting of Confucius with Lao Dan and was current by the fourth century B.C.E. During the first half of the third century, Lao Dan was recognized as a great thinker in his own right and as the founder of a distinct “Laoist” school of thought.
The fact that Lao Dan appears favorably in both Confucian and Daoist sources seems to argue against the likelihood that the figure was fabricated for polemical purposes.
Lao Dan is but one manifestation of the divine Laozi, albeit a pivotal one because of the writing of the Daodejing, which in religious Daoism commands devotion as a foundational scripture that promises not only wisdom but also immortality and salvation to those who submit to its power.

Lao Zi est un nom chinois, coréen, hongrois, khmer ou vietnamien ; le nom de famille, Lao, précède donc le prénom.
Le sens du nom Lao lui-même est débattu : l’interprétation littérale de « vieux » ou « ancien », évoquant la sagesse, est tentante ; certains prennent le suffixe zi au sens littéral d’« enfant » et en font « le vieil enfant », appellation mystique ou symbolique.
Lao Zi et le souverain civilisateur mythique Huangdi sont les personnages centraux du courant huanglao, dont l'appellation provient de la combinaison de leurs deux noms.
