The Way of G-d / Derech Hashem is a major respected work by Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto.
Sam is using the version translated and annotated by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan in these classes.

Lesson Two covers pg(s) 31-43

The Creator

Every “believer” acknowledges that the Creator exist. G-d’s true nature is unfathomable. How can mankind learn the insights to G-d’s truths. Answer: “You shall not forget the things that you saw with your own eyes…and you shall make them known to your children and to your children’s children.” (Deuteronomy 4:9)

The Purpose of Creation

G-d’s purpose in Creation was and is to bestow only good to all His Creation, and His desire is only that the “good” be the greatest “good.” His wisdom therefore decreed that the nature of this true good benefaction be His giving created things the opportunity to attach themselves to Him to the greatest degree possible for them.
