Book Title: The Path: What Chinese Philosophers Can Teach Us About the Good Life

Author: Michael Puett and Christine Gross-loh

Book Description:

This is a recently published popular book that introduces some key themes in early Chinese philosophy and argues poignantly for the relevance of learning from non-Western cultures and non-modern periods of the human past. These were some of the ideas that I fell in love with when I started my specialization in ancient Chinese culture, thought, and history more than 20 years ago. I owe much to the great thinkers of ancient China who challenged me to think beyond current, dominant scholarly and philosophical paradigms and to the American scholars who helped me engage more deeply with such ideas (co-author of The Path M. Puett being one of them).
