What form did 'philosophy' take in the ancient Greek and early Chinese traditions, and what can we learn about the good life and the human condition by studying the great philosophers in comparison? This course explores the thoughts of Socrates and Confucius, Heraclitus and the Daodejing, Aristotle and Xunzi, to reveal interesting insights afforded by comparative philosophy.
