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.
This book presents an ethical theory designed to go beyond ideology in order to develop a basis for morality that transcends rigid and sometimes inapplicable rules by returning to the principle of universal love. 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
