Knowing Good From Evil Leads to Developing Good Well-Being -- New Book Shows Deeper Relationship Between Individual and Ethics
CONCORD, Mass., June 21, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Michael Hugh Nelson's book Ethics for Everyman arose out of his forty years of medical and mental health practice and activity in the public sector both in England and America as well as with stints as a ships' doctor to Egypt, Aden, India and Australia, a period as a doctor on a Greek shipping line in the Mediterranean as well as a general practitioner in Lagos, Nigeria in the early 1960s. Prior to that he had practiced in internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, tuberculosis, chest disease, neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry. Nelson came to the U.S. in 1966, completed a residency in psychiatry at The Massachusetts General Hospital and practice public health, public psychiatry and HMO psychiatry for the next forty years. He treated the most severely ill patients who combined medical and psychological damage. It was for these patients that this book was written. These patients were in, by far the greater majority of patients, all in counseling or receiving advices from non-medically trained counselors. Long term contact with these patients revealed significant gaps in the patients grasp and knowledge of how and why psychological therapy worked and that there were significant gaps in the content of the patients' and counselors' combined efforts. Such gaps included sensuality and sexuality, isolation and community, good and evil, meaning or no meaning, and death. This book was written over a period of thirty-five years in simple, clear, basic English in order to remedy these gaps. The twelve laws described in the book arose spontaneously in the course of the writing and were not consciously generated prior. They arose from the nature of the material and evoke a wide positive reception from the general public -- young adults, the mature and elderly adults like.
