Re: Feo: Ethics (Feo Amante)

I would have to disagree with you about Buddhism and Taoism, although less in the latter case.Buddhism is a religion, and has evolved as such, with the only difference that the central figre in buddhism returns constantly among humans, instead of becoming some ethereal more or less antropomophic idealization.
As for Taoism, I know much too little about its fundamentals to make any intelligible comment.It seems to me very close to what I would call a natural philosophy of life, and yet I cannot stop from seeing a certain parallel between taoism and the greek mithology, at least when it comes to the ultimate goal of it, to become a hsien, an immortal.With the difference that Olympus has been replaced with something even less tangible.

So,returning to ethics, how can one develop/acquire the necessary fundamentals for a code of ethics without actually making use of some "well-established" religious principles, or deriving from the latter?
