A Brief History of Everything
A new edition of the best-selling work from one of the most forward-thinking and important philosophers of our time. This book is a friendly and accessible account of men and women's places in a universe of sex, soul, and spirit. Wilber examines the course of evolution as the unfolding manifestation of Spirit, from matter to life to mind, including the higher stages of spiritual development where Spirit becomes conscious of itself. The author offers striking and original views of topics of current interest and controversy: gender wars, multiculturalism, and ecology and environmental ethics among them. The result is an extraordinary ride through the Kosmos. Now reissued as a 20th Anniversary Edition with a new afterword by Ken Wilber and Lana Wachowski."
Combining spiritual sensitivity with enormous intellectual understanding and a style of elegance and clarity, "A Brief History of Everything" is a clarion call for seeing the world as a whole, much at odds with the depressing reductionism of trendy Foucault-derivative academic philosophy.-- Keith Thompson, "San Francisco Sunday Examiner and Chronicle Book Review," April 28, 1986
