A PERSONAL WORD FROM THE AUTHOR

The newly released edition of: Character Values: Promoting a Virtuous Lifestyle,is sure to have much to contribute to the political and moral climate in America today. This revolutionary new system unites all of the major groupings of virtues, values, and ideals into a unified ten level hierarchy, the first grand unified theory of its type. As a unified theory, it has the potential to revolutionize the way we view religion, ethics, and politics as we know them. It has an appeal to politics with respect to the 'civil liberties' (providence-liberty-civility-austerity), to the spiritually minded with respect to the theological virtues (faith-hope-charity-decency), to philosophers in regard to the classical Greek values (beauty-truth-goodness-wisdom), to secular humanists with respect to the 'humanistic values' (peace-love-tranquility-equality), and even a mystical slant, 'the mystical values' (ecstasy-bliss-joy-harmony), amongst others. Such a systematic unified hierarchy draws together all of these diverse philosophies into a single system, with applications and ramifications accordingly.

A further bonus aspect to this book is the grand synthesis of this ethical hierarchy with the principles of behavioral psychology (chapter three), an exciting synthesis of religious and scientific principles. Indeed, this application gives the first objective, scientific grounding to the purely subjective realm of ethics and morality, sure to be of immediate interest to researchers in psychology, as well as anyone with religious beliefs. This basic theme is further followed up in chapters 13-19 with a detailed examination of the corresponding realm of the "vices." Indeed, any true understanding of the virtues is necessarily tempered by a further contrast with the vices, for only then does this "real life" interpretation become conceptually complete.

In chapters 20-21, I further outline how such an all-inclusive ethical hierarchy is amenable to programming directly into the computer, resulting in the first ethically-based program for Artificial Intelligence. This new invention could ultimately serve as the basis for an entirely new interractive operating system, completely novel in its ability to simulate motivationally charged language in an AI role; an achievement that has previously eluded AI researchers due to the lack of a good model of motivation in general. Such an all inclusive conceptual synthesis contains widespread applications to virtually everyone, whether they are computer savy fans, the religiously minded, parents interested in family values, or those interested in psychology. I invite everyone to examine the free introductory, Chapter Excerpt (please see link at the end of this CONTACT page), where I lay out the entire outline of the remaining 38 chapters. Should you find this taste intriguing, I guarantee that the remainder of the book will prove equally exciting. Enjoy!
