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.

About the Author

Damien Keown is Professor of Buddhist Ethics at Goldsmith's College, University of London. 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).

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
