(道教). One of the traditional Three Teachings, dating back to at least the 4th century BCE. Its mythical founder is Laozi (老子), also spelled Lao-Tzu. The official romanization system adopted in China transliterates 道教 as “Daoism” rather than “Taoism.” However, the traditional Western spelling “Taoism” is kept by some scholars as more faithful to the Chinese pronunciation.
