abstract
The project undertakes a critical comparison of ethical domeins from the West and Asia. Absence of a normative language of morals in Asia, the role that stories play as learning units, are contrasted with the tradition of casuistry in the West. The investigation must show that cross cultural ethics confronts the problem of differences at the level of the ethical domain itself.
