Newsletter: Week of September 18, 2017

From the Program Director

Sarah Chandonnet

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. This is why Professor Michael Puett says to his students, "The encounter with these ideas will change your life.... you can open yourself up to possibilities you never imagined were even possible."

Join us for a conversation with Michael Puett about his course, and his book, The Path: What Chinese Philosophers Can Teach Us About the Good Life.

Michael Puett is the Walter C. Klein Professor of Chinese History and Anthropology, as well as the Chair of the Committee on the Study of Religion, at Harvard University.   1:30-3:00pm, 30 JFK Street.   Read more here.

P.S. We hope you enjoyed the event this past Sunday with E.O. Wilson! You can watch the recording here, see photos here, and bid on an original, signed poster here (benefits go to the Big Question Lab, our secular kids' programming!)
