About the Author:

Richard Reilly has authored over three dozen conference papers and journal articles. He is Board of Trustees Professor of Philosophy at St. Bonaventure University.

Review:

Ethics of Compassion not only bridges ethical theory and religious moral discourse more generally, but also Buddhist ethics and western moral theory, in the process enlarging the scope of both. This is a much needed and brilliant work in the relatively new field of comparative ethics, which falls in the sparsely populated category of 'must read.' (Joseph Prabhu, California State University, Los Angeles)

Reilly brings a deep knowledge of both Anglo-American ethical philosophy and Buddhist ethical thought to his book Ethics of Compassion. I was impressed by his skill in integrating these concepts. Reilly's fundamental concerns are humanistic. But he supports them with impressively rigorous scholarly analysis. I see the book as a must-read. (Herbert Fingarette, University of California, Santa Barbara; author of Confucius: The Secular as Sacred)
