CONTEMPORARY PERSPECTIVES ON BUDDHIST ETHICS CONFERENCE
Columbia University, October 6-7, 2011

http://www.cbs.columbia.edu/buddhist_ethics/

Buddhist ethics aims to identify and evaluate the different ethical
(and metaethical) positions advanced in Buddhist texts. Researchers in
the mainstream of philosophy and psychology have begun to appreciate
the promise of Buddhist ethical discourse on such topics as the nature
of the persons, freedom, attention training, and emotional regulation.
Moreover, the growth of Buddhist ethics as a discipline has also led
Western teachers and practitioners of Buddhism to apply it’s tenets to
contemporary issues and problems. This conference endeavors to further
advance the project of Buddhist ethics through constructive
transdisciplinary dialogue.
