(p.77) 5 Buddhist Ethics in the Context of Conventional Truth

Jay L. Garfield

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that there is no special problem in Buddhist ethics. Instead of solving a problem about ethics in the context of conventional truth, it seeks to eliminate an apparent problem. It does so by analyzing the ethical thought of four important Madhyamaka philosophers: Nāgārjuna, Āryadeva, Candrakīrti, and Śāntideva.

Keywords:   ethics, ethical truths, Buddhism, ethical theory, Madhyamaka philosophers, Nāgārjuna, Āryadeva, Candrakīrti, Śāntideva, conventional truth
