Integral Vision

Author(s): Ken Wilber


At last, an accessible book for anyone who wants to understand Ken Wilber's thought and its practical applications - both personal and global - in the quickest, easiest way possible. The key components of Wilber's Integral Approach - a tool for "making sense of everything" - are distilled here into a short, simple, and elegant presentation with full-colour illustrations. What is the Integral Approach? Suppose we took everything that all the various cultures have to tell us about human potential - about spiritual growth, psychological growth, and social growth - and tried to identify the critically essential patterns that connect these pieces of knowledge? What if we attempted, based on this extensive cross-cultural study, to create an all-inclusive map that includes the best elements from all of the world's great traditions? The Integral Approach provides just such a map. Using all the known systems and models of human growth - from the ancient shamans and sages to today's breakthroughs in cognitive science - it distills their major components into five simple factors, factors that can be verified in our own consciousness right now. Whether we are working in business, psychotherapy, law, medicine or ordinary everyday living and learning, an Integral Approach ensures that we are utilizing the full range of resources for any situation - which means a greater likelihood of success. By providing a basic understanding of the key elements of the Integral Approach - including simple exercises and familiar examples from areas such as moral values, spirituality, health, business, ecology, and relationships - "The Integral Vision" shows readers how they can accelerate their own growth and development to higher, wider, deeper ways of being, and achieve greater excellence in personal and professional life. All of this is presented in a fun, flashy, accessible manner, so that readers easily understand how the Integral Approach is an exciting, valuable and relevant addition to their daily life. Review: Named one of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of the Year 2007.
"Philosopher, psychologist, and mystic Wilber delivers on the subtitle's far-reaching promise. . . . Chock full of handsome illustrations and spare, Zen-like diagrams and tables, Wilber's work here is still accessible and at times surprisingly practical. Some language spirals up majestically, recalling great Eastern texts. Reminiscent in spirit and watershed import of Ram Dass's Be Here Now, Wilber may well have created a popular classic for explorers on the frontiers of humanity."--Publishers Weekly
"[Wilber's] heady multidimensional approach is deciphered in this spiffy full-color paperback filled with pop culture graphics, tables, and charts. If you are interested in consciousness, complexity, maps, multiple intelligences, and more, here is a comprehensive philosophy that puts it all together."--Spirituality and Health First published 2007.
