The Problem of Suffering in Classical Chinese Philosophy



Prof. Michael Puett

Michael Puett is the Walter C. Klein Professor of Chinese History and Anthropology at Harvard University. He is the recipient of a Harvard College Professorship for excellence in undergraduate teaching. His interests are focused on the inter-relations between history, anthropology, religion, and philosophy, with the hope of bringing the study of China into larger historical and comparative frameworks. He is the author of The Ambivalence of Creation: Debates Concerning Innovation and Artifice in Early China and To Become a God: Cosmology, Sacrifice, and Self-Divinization in Early China. He is also the co-author, with Adam Seligman, Robert Weller, and Bennett Simon, of Ritual and its Consequences: An Essay on the Limits of Sincerity , as well as the co-author, with Christine Gross-Loh, of The Path: What Chinese Philosophy Can Teach Us About the Good Life.
