A New Moral Code
By Dr. Jeff Schweitzer

At a moment when our earth is in crisis, Dr. Jeff Schweitzer, in his most recent book A New Moral Code, offers a novel approach to solving our most pressing problems, starting with personal responsibility and ending with social cooperation on a global scale. His book comes not a moment too soon as we struggle with increasingly dire social crises and an ailing planet.      

Offering a new and exciting perspective on the purpose and meaning of life Dr. Schweitzer shares how we each have the power to create our own meaning, our own sense of purpose, and our own destiny. We are all free to pave our own road to a better life.  Not only does Dr. Schweitzer make a compelling case for us to consider a new life course, he shows an easy trail to follow.

With clarity and a healthy dose of humor, Dr. Schweitzer describes a new world of personal responsibility and global cooperation in which we can take control of our lives, our environment and our personal and collective destinies.

Economic meltdown, an environment in crisis, and a growing threat of terrorism are the inevitable consequence of humanity’s dark side winning out over the good.  Dr. Schweitzer explains how we can rediscover our inherent good, and act accordingly, individually and collectively.

A New Moral Code will transform your view of self.  How you interact with that image in the mirror, with your loved ones, and with your environment -- will never be the same.  A New Moral Code will show you the way.

Publisher: Jacquie Jordan. 2010.  258 pages.

Beyond Cosmic Dice: Moral Life in a Random World
By Dr. Jeff Schweitzer and Giuseppe Notarbartolo-Di Sciar

In their intriguing book, Beyond Cosmic Dice, Jeff Schweitzer and Giuseppe Notarbartolo-Di Sciara offer a new perspective on the purpose and meaning of life. 

The authors believe that each of us have the power to create our own meaning, sense of purpose and destiny in life. We all have the ability to choose, and choosing is what makes us special as individuals and as a species.

The authors consider and reject a traditional, often religious, view that life’s meaning and purpose is controlled and manipulated by some unseen force. Instead, they urge the reader to consider his own biological destiny and use that to inform his destiny. Using this “natural” ethic we are able to pave our own road to a better life.

Once we realize that life is not “other” directed, but instead is guided by our individual and collective power to make choices and to be moral, we are free to make the best decisions for ourselves, our loved ones and the planet.  There is tremendous freedom and joy in understanding that the purpose and meaning of life are self-derived. Discover your life purpose, read Beyond Cosmic Dice.  Publisher: Jacquie Jordan.  2009.  258 pages.

Global Change of Planet Earth
>By OECD Staff

Dr. Schweitzer was instrumental in establishing the permanent Global Forum on Science and Technology (informally known as the Megascience Forum) at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to promote greater international scientific collaboration. The objective of the Forum is to create international partnerships to tackle problems too big for any one country to support alone.

There is no better example than climate change. This book is one of the earliest to articulate the problem and suggest cooperative programs to address this critical issue.

There are many spheres of knowledge about the fishes of this region that need to be investigated. Cooperation of researchers in every area becomes something greatly to be desired. I firmly hope that this book will contribute significantly to the future advancement of our understanding of this vital resource.” - Japanese Emperor Akihito

Il Dilemma della Sfinge: Come convivere con la nostra duplice natura nel rapporto con gli altri animali
(The Dilemma of the Sphinx: Redefining the Relationship Between Humans and Other Animals).

By Dr. Jeff Schweitzer and Giuseppe Notarbartolo-Di Sciara.

Unlike any other animal on earth, we feel compassion for our prey. We carry a burden unique in the world of biology because with compassion comes a true dilemma: as animals we have an absolute and natural right to prey upon other animals and compete with them for territory and resources. But how do we exercise this natural right while minimizing pain and suffering? The intriguing and original ideas put forth by Schweitzer and di Sciara offer a solution to the dilemma faced by a compassionate predator by redefining the human-animal relationship. The authors arrive at their unique perspective from a fascinating combination of common sense, practicality, and a deep understanding of the scientific principles underlying humanity's natural evolutionary history and current place in the bush of life.
