Title: Euthanasia : Buddhist principles
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: M. Barnes

Description: Religions provide various forms of motivation for moral action. This chapter takes Buddhism as an example from within the Indian 'family' of religions and seeks to identify the doctrinal and cultural principles on which ethical decisions are taken. Although beginning from very different religious premises, it is argued that the conclusions to which Buddhism tends are broadly similar to those found within mainstream Christianity.
