‘A New Buddhist Ethics’ by Robert M Ellis

Originally written in 2007, this book offers a radical reform of Buddhist Ethics through the use of the Middle Way as a practical and universal guide to action. It argues that more traditional criteria for Buddhist Ethics, such as precepts, are actually dependent on the Middle Way for their interpretation, and that appeals to karma and rebirth are in conflict with the Middle Way.A New Buddhist Ethics

Most of the book offers a detailed survey of a variety of a range practical moral issues – including medical ethics, the environment, treatment of animals, economic ethics, sexual ethics, and war. In each case it aims to show how the Middle Way can be applied to find a balanced, relevant, and thoroughly justifiable approach to these issues.
