 The Path: A New Way to Think About Everything

Today at Harvard, one course has unexpectedly become the most popular on campus: Michael Puett’s History of Chinese Philosophy. What is it about his lectures that has captured the attention of the world’s brightest young minds?

In this special event for the how to: Academy you can experience yourself the life-changing impact Professor Puett’s lectures can have, when he explains how Chinese philosophy can offer a new, positive way to think about ourselves and the world around us.

The ideas developed by Chinese philosophers are among the most influential in history – but the majority remain unknown by Western people. With a deep understanding of the texts of Confucius, Mencius, Laozi, Zhuangzi and Xunzi, Michael Puett invites us to re-examine the Western notions that influence much of our lives, and explore new ways of thinking that provide fresh direction for our decisions and actions.

Stripping away the clichés of ‘exotic’ and mystical Eastern thought, Puett will explore the real and practical implications of Chinese philosophy – and explain how an appreciation of its ways of thinking can bring about a positive change in all of our lives, from improving our moods to helping us set our life goals. Just as Puett’s lectures have done at Harvard, this talk will challenge your preconceptions, and open your mind to a new way to think about everything.

I read The Path in one sitting and have been talking about it to everyone. It’s brilliant, mesmerizing, profound— and deeply contrarian. It stands conventional wisdom on its head and points the way to a life of genuine fulfilment and meaning.” Amy Chua, Yale Law professor and author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
