Harvard's most popular professor explains how thinkers from Confucius to Xunzi can transform our daily lives. In the first book of its kind, The Path draws on the work of six of the great - but largely unknown - Chinese philosophers to offer a radical and life-changing guide to human flourishing. By examining the teachings of Chinese thinkers, and explaining what they reveal about our daily lives - from greeting others to raising children - The Path challenges some of our deepest held assumptions. It shows that the way to live well is not to slavishly follow a grand plan, as so much of western thought would have us believe, but rather to follow a path - one of self-cultivation and self-discovery.
