By so doing, it provides an ethical framework for unconventional ideas and research that challenges traditional beliefs which are vested in ideological, financial and political interests More

About Arthur D. Schwartz

Arthur D. Schwartz has practiced hypnotherapy and philosophical counseling in Newton, Massachusetts USA since 2001.

Arthur is a lifelong student of philosophy. He studied philosophy at American University and at Indiana University, and subsequently spent five years writing Objective Ethics (unpublished). His life then gravitated away from disciplined philosophical pursuits and for many years worked as a programmer and, subsequently, the running of a retail business. But Arthur always dreamed of returning to writing and to philosophy--a path finally realized through the field of hypnotism and its many interconnections between conscious and subconscious belief. Six years of research and seven years of writing resulted in the book, Ethical Empowerment: Virtue Beyond the Paradigms.

Ethical Empowerment develops an ethical theory based upon an insistence that beliefs need to be challenged with opposing perspectives, and on a philosophical conception of love as the underlying principle of morality. The philosophical dimensions of this theory are then entertained and a view is formed concerning freedom and the forces of "convergence", and how both influence individual lives and human history. Many social, economic, political and intellectual issues are explored from this vantage as it seeks to move beyond hypnotic, knee-jerk thinking and ideology.

Additional works are forthcoming.


Love and The Moral Dialectic
The basis of morality and the foundation of ethics. A presentation derived from Ethical Empowerment: Virtue Beyond the Paradigms. Love as dialectical force.

Crash the Party
An independent non-party system is possible. The institutionalized political party is unnecessarily divisive and is motivated by power and greed. Getting rid of the party will unleash the potential of a great society that has freed itself from the party's hyper-politicizing character. Political discourse will then be elevated to levels that will facilitate personal and collective empowerment.
