Distinguished Lecture by:
Michael Puett, Harvard University

University at Buffalo North Campus

Michael Puett is the Walter C. Klein Professor of Chinese History and Anthropology and Chair of the Committee on the Study of Religion, at Harvard University. His interests are focused on the inter-relations between philosophy, anthropology, history, and religion, 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. His most recent book, The Path: What Chinese Philosophers Can Teach Us about the Good Life, coauthored with Christine Gross-Loh (Simon & Schuster 2016), received widespread attention in the news media.
