Gather pick ― why are hundreds of Harvard students studying ancient Chinese philosophy?

Can a university class change your life? Professor Michael Puett says that’s exactly what his Classical Chinese Ethical and Political Theory class is doing for his students:

“The Chinese philosophers we read taught that the way to really change lives for the better is from a very mundane level, changing the way people experience and respond to the world, so what I try to do is to hit them at that level. I’m not trying to give my students really big advice about what to do with their lives. I just want to give them a sense of what they can do daily to transform how they live.”
