With these 24 accessible lectures, enjoy an adventurous exploration of one of the world's most important philosophical texts. Filled with rich historical context, detailed close readings of key passages, expert interpretations of larger cultural trends, and stories of Confucius and his most notable students (and critics), these lectures are required learning for anyone who wants a solid understanding of Eastern philosophy - and the ways a single book can cross cultures and go on to inspire an entire world.

I loved this lecture series so much that I plan to listen to this a few more times. I have learned to distinguish false critics and blame on Confucius teaching for the backwardness in Vietnamese social progress in the 20th century.

I truly appreciate how Professor clarifies genuine Confucius teaching of life long learning and how his teaching is still very relevant today.
