An Introduction to Buddhism

by Peter Harvey

Este libro proporciona una amplia introducciin a la tradiciin budista tal y como se desarrolli en tres areas culturales principales de Asia, y al budismo tal y como se esta desarrollando actualmente en Occidente. Este libro no silo explora la cosmovisiin de esta religiin, sino que tambien pretende mostrar cimo funciona el budismo como conjunto de practicas. Por consiguiente, incluye capitulos sobre devociin, etica, practica monastica, y meditaciin, y relaciona cada uno de estos elementos con las ensenanzas y acontecimientos histiricos del budismo. Al describir el pensamiento y la practica, este libro tambien pretende transmitir parte del tono emocional del budismo, y al insistir en la diversidad que existe en las diferentes tradiciones budistas, tiene como objetivo subrayar, a lo largo de toda la obra, los puntos en comun que presentan las creencias, las practicas y las continuidades histiricas que unen al mundo budista.

An Introduction to Buddhist Ethics: Foundations, Values and Issues

by Peter Harvey

This systematic introduction to Buddhist ethics is aimed at anyone interested in Buddhism, including students, scholars and general readers. Peter Harvey is the author of the acclaimed Introduction to Buddhism (Cambridge, 1990), and his new book is written in a clear style, assuming no prior knowledge. At the same time it develops a careful, probing analysis of the nature and practical dynamics of Buddhist ethics in both its unifying themes and in the particularities of different Buddhist traditions. The book applies Buddhist ethics to a range of issues of contemporary concern: humanity's relationship with the rest of nature; economics; war and peace; euthanasia; abortion; the status of women; and homosexuality. Professor Harvey draws on texts of the main Buddhist traditions, and on historical and contemporary accounts of the behaviour of Buddhists, to describe existing Buddhist ethics, to assess different views within it, and to extend its application into new areas.
