    Om Ethics of Sankara and Santideva

    Exploring the philosophical concerns of the nature of self, this book draws from two of the most influential Indian masters, akara and ntideva. Todd demonstrates that an ethics of altruism is still possible within a metaphysics which assumes there to be no independent self. A new ethical model based on the notions of flickering consciousness and constructive altruism is proposed.By comparing the metaphysics and ethics of ntideva and akara, Todd shows that the methodologies and aims of these Buddhist and Hindu masters trace remarkably similar cross-cutting paths. Treating Buddhism and Hinduism with equal respect, this book compares and reinterprets the Indian material so as to engage with contemporary Western debates on self and to show that Indian philosophy is indeed a philosophy of dialogue.
