MWP Video 1a: Middle Way and Buddhism

This video is tributary to ‘Middle Way Philosophy 1: Introduction’, which introduced the Middle Way as a principle of judgement, navigating in uncertainty between opposed absolutes. This video is directed towards Buddhists or those interested in Buddhism, to aid understanding of the differences between the universal Middle Way and the Middle Way in Buddhism. Though the Middle Way was (probably) first articulated as a concept by the Buddha, it is not limited to or justified by the Buddhist tradition, and can be found in all sorts of other contexts too. The Middle Way does not depend on the belief that the Buddha was enlightened (which indeed, being absolute, conflicts with the Middle Way).
