Lecture: Cultivating Ethical Perception: A Buddhist Perspective on Moral Development.

“Cultivating Ethical Perception: A Buddhist Perspective on Moral Development”

Ethics is a shared concern with many of the Honors’ courses. But what is ethics about? Is it about virtue? About rights and duties? About spreading happiness? Each of these views has partisans in the Western tradition.  But what if it is about none of these? What if it is about how we experience the world? That is how the Buddhist tradition sees matters. In this talk, we will explore this idea together, drawing on Buddhist philosophers as early as the Buddha as well as modern ones such as the Dalai Lama.
