This is a sneak peak of my course on the Golden Mean. In this installment, I go through the first book of Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics. Together, we'll walk through each chapter of Aristotle's Ethics, Lewis's Abolition of Man, Confucius' Analects and Doctrine of the Mean, Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, and then discuss what they have in common.
