Eye of Spirit: An Integral Vision for a World Gone Slightly Madby Ken Wilber
Wilber's widely acknowledged "spectrum of consciousness" model integrates numerous different and important fields, from art and literary theology to cultural studies, from anthropology to philosophy. Using the spectrum approach, he shows exactly how the essentials of these various fields can be brought together in a coherent, comprehensive, and compelling fashion, thus providing an "integrative vision" for the modern and postmodern world. 432 pp. 20,000 print.

This book contains many very interesting observations about various theories and political movements and how the people involved in them see themselves as in opposition to each other when in fact they are complementary in many ways. The author tries to explain how this fragmentation is caused by a certain type of consciousness that is also at the root of many of our modern environmental and social problems. I think this is a timely book that allows us to expand our consciousness and evolve out of the contemporary rut of the modern age. While the author tries to examine this from a relatively objective and critical view from above, it is also important to be mindful of the fact that the root of this type of thinking is also caused by the type of consciousness so problematic of our times. There is another highly regarded book called 'The Ever-Transcending Spirit' by Toru Sato that addresses this in an extremely inspiring and accesible way. These are the types of books that really remind me of the joy of learning.
