Description

Joel Kupperman shows how six philosophical topics of late-1990s interest can benefit from interaction with Asian philosophy. The topics are: the formation of the self as an ethical problem, the fluidity of the self, the ethical nature of choice, the scope of ethics, the demands of ethics, and the nature of philosophy as an enterprise. For each of these topics he introduces the relevant Asian sources and shows how new consideration of them can enrich one's understanding of the very range and scope of ethical concern, and enhance our own ability to describe and account for important features of human life. In so doing, he builds a bridge across the disciplines. This book is intended for philosophers.
