HIS 115 CC: CHINESE PATH TO HAPPINESS
What is the best way to live a more meaningful, fulfilling, and ethical life? How might human society be organized to best encourage human flourishing and peaceful co-existence? Classical Chinese thinkers engaged in on-going debates about these important human questions and the powerful and persuasive answers they proposed remain relevant today as China, the United States, and nations around the world undergo rapid globalization. Students interested in exploring ethical, political, spiritual, and philosophical approaches to living a more meaningful life in this global age marked by the dominance of material and consumer culture are invited to ponder the answers that classical Chinese thinkers devised in response to these questions of human perennial concern.
