Awesome course, highly recommended! I think it is so valuable that an institution like Harvard puts up a course like this on the internet, basically for free. It is a great introduction to key chinese philosophers and their teachings (Confucius, Laozi and others). Great professor who puts everything into a language you can understand even if you have no background in philosophy. I am now halfway through the course and really look forward to the rest. And it is free to listent to the lectures and do some of the exercises, so in my view that is absolutely sufficient, no need to buy the rest of the exercises (unless you really want to get a certificate for the course).

How do you like the course 'The Path to Happiness: What Chinese Philosophy Teaches us about the Good Life'?
