BUDDHIST ETHICS: A Very Short Introduction
BUDDHIST ETHICS: A Very Short Introduction
Description
From the Jacket :

Do we have a moral obligation to the environment? Should states remain pacifist in the face of terrorism? Would cloning a human life be wrong?

In this thought-provoking work, Damien Keown shows how Buddhist thought can shed new light on problems the West continues to find difficult and divisive, from animal rights and abortion, to war and euthanasia.

This book is ideal for anyone seeking an alternate perspective on the key ethical dilemmas confronting us in society today, and is the perfect companion to Buddhist: A Very Short Introduction.

His many publications on Buddhism and Buddhist ethics include Buddhism: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford University Press, 2000); Contemporary Buddhist Ethics (Curzon Press, 2000) and A Dictionary of Buddhism (Oxford University Press, 2003).

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
