Saturday 29th April, Philosophy & Buddhism: Ethics A seminar with Silavadin
10am – 4pm
For the ancient Greeks a happy life was a flourishing life. We are all born with natural qualities and by bringing these to excellence (virtue) we will do the most good, both to ourselves and to others. Wasn’t this the view of the Buddha too?
We will explore Buddhist ethics by setting it against the background of the Western model of ‘virtue ethics’. This can clarify our ethical views and motivate us to live according to them.
Silavadin is well versed in the western tradition of moral philosophy – particularly the virtue ethics of the ancient Greeks.
The seminar promises to be an enlightening and fresh perspective on what it means to practice.
