Publisher's Summary

From a leading expert on the Golden Rule, essential listening on life’s most fundamental lesson.

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus summarizes the core message of his teaching: “In everything, do to others as you would have them do to you.” Sometimes written as “treat others as you want to be treated”, the Golden Rule is the basis for a powerful ethical system. Under the guidance of acclaimed Catholic philosophy professor Fr. Harry Gensler, S.J., you will explore its applications in Scripture, philosophy, and modern life in this compelling audio series.

Nearly every religion - including Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism - embraces the Golden Rule. It thus provides a common ethical standard with which to engage in interreligious dialogue in our increasingly diverse world. 

In 12 enlightening lectures, you will explore four essential areas of the Golden Rule: its basic applications, its history, how it relates to religion, and how to practice it. This course is perfect for anyone seeking guidance on how to apply the Golden Rule wisely and readily in their life. Come to appreciate the clarity and power of Earth’s most important moral ideal. 

This course is part of the Learn25 collection.

Critic Reviews

"Harry Gensler is the world’s most logical, clear, and good-humored teacher of the Golden Rule. Gensler’s super-clear and sometimes funny visual aids keep you laughing and learning. He clarifies misunderstandings and refutes cheap attacks on the rule, and he brings in practical wisdom, historical information, and diverse religious perspectives. This lecture series is not to be missed." (Jeffrey Wattles, Kent State University)

"Professor Harry Gensler’s life-long fascination with the Golden Rule brings us works that meet the most rigorous scrutiny of philosophers and provide a simple and powerful moral tool any person can apply every day." (Leland R. Beaumont)

"Harry Gensler has done outstanding and extremely important work on the Golden Rule. He gives a compelling defense of the Golden Rule. His work is very clear, very strongly argued, and highly original." (Thomas Carson, Loyola University Chicago)
