Today Buddhism is often presented as a religion without dogmas and commandments, without God and without any need to believe, tolerating all and everything as no religion at all, but as a way of life most suitable to the needs of post-modern Westerners. But is this an accurate image? In this book Buddhism is introduced as a genuine religion, gentle and powerful, being as demanding as it is consoling. Buddhism is certainly not a theistic faith, but neither is it a form of atheism or materialism. Rather it is a challenge to both: a rich source of metaphysical, ethical and spiritual insight that has shaped and nourished countless generations of followers all over Asia and that is now taking firm roots in the West.

Author: Alexis M. Elder
Various emerging technologies, from social robotics to social media, appeal to our desire for social interactions, while avoiding some of the risks and costs of face-to-face human interaction. But can they offer us real friendship? In this book, Alexis Elder outlines a theory of friendship drawing on Aristotle and contemporary work on social ontology, and then uses it to evaluate the real value of social robotics and emerging social technologies. In the first part of the book Elder develops a robust and rigorous ontology of friendship: what it is, how it functions, what harms it, and how it relates to familiar ethical and philosophical questions about character, value, and well-being. In Part II she applies this ontology to emerging trends in social robotics and human-robot interaction, including robotic companions for lonely seniors, therapeutic robots used to teach social skills to children on the autism spectrum, and companionate robots currently being developed for consumer markets. Elder articulates the moral hazards presented by these robots, while at the same time acknowledging their real and measurable benefits. In the final section she shifts her focus to connections between real people, especially those enabled by social media. Arguing against critics who have charged that these new communication technologies are weakening our social connections, Elder explores ways in which text messaging, video chats, Facebook, and Snapchat are enabling us to develop, sustain, and enrich our friendship in new and meaningful ways.

The Golden/Silver Rule precepts and associated maxims are the pillars upon which most major religious and philosophical traditions, moral and legal codes, are founded, that also relate to science. Dating back almost to the beginnings of civilized culture in ancient Africa over 5,000 years ago, and elsewhere, the rules are among the earliest oral civil precepts/codes to be committed to print regarding appropriate social conduct across most situations. This wisdom inquiry offers, some background, an integrative theory for most of the versions of the precepts found amongst the worlds cultures, in addition to, some newly created reciprocity labels, and maxims, based on mutuality, generosity, altruism and ethical levels. A draft integration of some new mutuality rules, and interaction relations, for science, religion, and philosophy, are offered, along with some sample optimums for various life style types on an altruism-egoism ethics scale.
