Course Description
  • Beginning with the teachings of the Buddha, the
    course will cover the historical spread of
    Buddhism, the development of its three major
    schools, and the practice of Buddhism in modern
    life. We will focus first on Buddhist ethical
    theory and then on its application to
    contemporary moral issuesparticularly within the
    context of Southeast Asian societies. Readings by
    socially engaged Buddhist writers will include
    topics such as consumerism, globalization, social
    justice, human rights, terrorism, and
    environmental ethics.
