Why is a course on ancient Chinese philosophers one of the most popular at Harvard?
It’s because the course challenges all our modern assumptions about what it takes to flourish. As Professor Michael Puett says to his students, “The encounter with these ideas will change your life.”
Chinese philosophical thinking is among the most powerful and influential in human history – and its ideas challenge many of the widely held assumptions Westerners have about the self and how to lead a flourishing life. Join China Institute on Tuesday June 7, as we welcome Michael Puett and Christine Gross-Loh to discuss their recent work,The Path: What Chinese Philosophers Can Teach Us About the Good Life. For the first time an award-winning Harvard professor shares his wildly popular course on classical Chinese philosophy, showing you how these ancient ideas can guide you on the path to a good life today.
