Thank you so much Prof Lagerwey and Coursera. All my gratitude for this brilliant journey.

From the lesson
MODULE 03: The Philosophical Preparation of Political Unity
We are going to learn about the meaning of “transcendence” as seen in the sacrifice to Heaven of the “Son of Heaven” (the king and later the emperor) and in the new cosmology of the Dao (Way) and Qi (vital energy).
