Abstract

Virtue ethics/character ethics is concerned for the good and happiness of the person, and what it is to be a well-balanced individual. The concept of virtue ethics/character ethics is explored within Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism, and in so doing, to find links and common ground between them. The method is descriptive and uses virtue ethics/character ethics as a category and bridge that crosses all the three religious traditions.
