The Role That Communication and Buddhist Ethics Play in Contemporary World

Chester Green


In real life, human life cannot be separated from communication. Communication is not just the flow of information. Communication means learning from each other, understanding each other, and providing their own information to each other. In the process of information communication, we should pay attention to the ethics related to any form of communication. What can be said and what cannot be said also should be taken into account. Under this circumstance, Buddhist ethics believes that communication should be bound by ethics because of people’s ideal life. Otherwise, such communication will pose a danger to the goal of achieving ideal life. In this article, we intend to try to discuss the role of Buddhist ethics and communication in the crisis of the contemporary world.
