Michael Puett is the ‘it’ professor at Harvard University these days. His ability to take Chinese philosophy, centuries back, and distill it into a guidepost for the students of the 21st century has created an incredible stir on campus–and off. So how does Chinese thought translate into better ways to approach life today? Why, you might ask, is this part of an Americatrendspodcast series? Think about it, if this course is having the impact we believe on Harvard students, and if they(as have been the case for so many years)become the business and government leaders of the future, then it stands to reason that this thought process will be incorporated into the future of America. Make sense? Give it a listen.
