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 Twenty covers pg(s) 193-207

We have discussed how all created things originate in the transcendental Forces. These Forces are arranged in a logical system with various divisions, from which the different categories of physical phenomena are derived. We have furthermore explained how the primary Essence of every physical thing is that which exists in its transcendental Roots. That which exists on the physical plane is merely a reflection of what originated and composed on this higher level.
There therefore exists over each physical thing a chain of Roots, one above the other, reaching up to the original Forces. Each of these remains in its proper position, permanently sustaining itself in the level and domain ordained by the Creator.
