Initially, I was not very interested in Confucius/Kongzi. I came to the course hoping learn more about Laozi and the Daodejing. Overall the course far exceeded my wildest expectations. I loved its depth and the breadth: making complicated things simple without dumbing them down. I only wished the course could have gone on and on. Seven weeks is far too short for such a meaty topic. I have no basis to judge the Chinese scholarship offered here. But the content would be still more riveting (from my perspective) if it explored a few of the fascinating resonances with contemporary management thinking (such as Tom Malone on Collective Intelligence, Ed Schein on Culture, John van Maanen on Organizational Socialization, Donald Schön on Reflective Practice, Pearce and Littlejohn on Moral Conflict, and so on).
