About Arthur D. Schwartz

Arthur is a lifelong student of philosophy, and director of Integral Hypnosis, a hypnotherapy and philosophical counseling practice located in Newton, MA USA. Six years of research and seven years of writing have resulted in the book, Ethical Empowerment: Virtue Beyond the Paradigms. In Ethical Empowerment, an ethical theory is developed that is based upon a view that beliefs need to be challenged with opposing perspectives, and on a philosophical conception of love as the underlying principle of morality. The philosophical and practical dimensions of this theory are then entertained. Many social, economic, political and intellectual issues are explored from this vantage. 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.
