The goal of an “integral psychology” is to honor and embrace every legitimate aspect of human consciousness. This book presents one of the first truly integrative models of consciousness, psychology, and therapy. Drawing on hundreds of sources – East and West, ancient and modern – Wilber creates a psychological model that includes waves of development, streams of development, states of consciousness, and the self, and follows the course of each from subconscious to self-conscious to superconscious. Integral Psychology is Wilber’s most ambitious psychological work to date, and it is already being called a landmark study in human development.
Ken Wilber is one of the most widely read and influential American philosophers of our time, credited with creating a genuine world philosophy. The eight volumes of his recently published Collected Works include seventeen of his books as well as other writings.
