The Concept of the “Virtuous Person” in Socratic and Buddhist Tradition

Number of Pages 9

This 9 page paper considers the concept of the virtuous person in the Buddhist and Socratic traditions, and argues that it seems to be more coherent in the Socratic tradition, because that is the tradition we know in the West. However, the paper also suggests that the Buddhist tradition—which emphasizes compassion—is not inferior, simply different. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
