21st Century Ethics: Dr. Michael Puett Explained How We Can Become A Good Person

January 22, 2019

During his public talk at Fulbright University Vietnam, Dr. Michael Puett explained what it meant to be ethical from the view of Chinese philosophers. According to Dr. Puett, being ethical means breaking one’s patterns and forcing oneself to see the world in different perspective. Starting from the mundane everyday-life rituals, slowly one can see the larger global problems, see what is going on and sense how to solve them.

Dr. Puett is a renowned professor from Harvard University and the co-author of the best-selling book The Path: What Chinese Philosophers Can Teach Us About the Good Life. He was the first speaker of Fulbright University Vietnam’s “Moral Leadership Speaker Series” under the theme “Ethics in the 21st Century.”
