Sapien Ethics: Who We Are, Why We Are Here, and How We Can Live Better

Sapien Ethics: Who We Are, Why We Are Here, and How We Can Live BetterDo you believe there are clear answers to the questions: Who are we? Why are we here? No? I didn’t either. Do you believe the meaning of life comes from within and not from outside yourself? Yes? So did I.

Well, we were wrong.

Have you ever desired to understand your purpose in this complex world? Have you ever wondered why people do the things they do? When presented with a choice, do you strive to make a sound decision?

This book is your key to discovering more about humanity’s existence. It explains how our seemingly divergent goals of happiness, success, and contributing to the betterment of humankind need not conflict.

At its core, Sapien Ethics is not a self-help book. It is a guide for those who thirst for knowledge and empowerment. It is for those who believe in the overwhelming value of truth.

Sapien Ethics brings the ancient philosophy of life known as Stoicism into our modern world. It combines two-thousand-year-old Stoic concepts with contemporary scientific theories. Best of all, the text uses simple everyday language to help readers absorb these universal truths and gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be human.

The book provides a framework to understand how nature influences our daily behavior, how our minds work, and how our social connections provide us with strength. Readers are presented with a new approach to perceiving and understanding the behaviors and actions of themselves and others. Readers can learn to understand different situations and view them in a way that makes their lives better and supports the advancement of humanity.

In addition, Sapien Ethics helps us understand how to make better choices. Decisions make a difference in an individual’s success and happiness. This book provides an opportunity to closely evaluate the choices we make and their impact on our lives. Finally, we look to the future of all humanity.

Author Mark F. Godwin, Ph.D., takes readers on an intellectual and spiritual journey that began in his youth, continued through his education, and saw him earn a Ph.D. with specializations in Mathematical Optimization, Machine Learning, and Controls from the University of California, Berkeley. He has worked in various Silicon Valley startups and has founded two of his own. In Sapien Ethics, he shares what he has discovered about the meaning of life and encourages readers to ponder life’s most important questions: Who are we? Why are we here? How can we live better? $0.99 on Kindle.
