AbstractAs a strategy to better understand Buddhist ethics, this work seeks to answer the question: with which family of western moral theories could we relate this theory? Against interpretations that characterize it as deontic, consequentialist, or more recent interpretations that consider it as a form of ethics of care, I will argue in favor of interpret it as closer to virtue ethics. My main argument in favor of this thesis is that both –Buddhist ethics and Virtue ethics- have to do fundamentally with the notion of self-cultivation or self-care.
