Overview

Integral Psychology by Ken Wilber

The goal of an "integral psychology" is to honor and embrace every legitimate aspect of human consciousness under one roof. This book presents one of the first truly integrative models of consciousness, psychology, and therapy. Drawing on hundreds of sources—Eastern and Western, 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. Included in the book are charts correlating over a hundred psychological and spiritual schools from around the world, including Kabbalah, Vedanta, Plotinus, Teresa of Ávila, Aurobindo, Theosophy, and modern theorists such as Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson, Jane Loevinger, Lawrence Kohlberg, Carol Gilligan, Erich Neumann, and Jean Gebser. Integral Psychology is Wilber's most ambitious psychological system to date and is already being called a landmark study in human development.

Ken Wilber, the master of integration, attempts to integrate many theories in the diverse field of psychology, philosophy, and spirituality in this book. It is full of very interesting ideas and isights. Even if you do not agree with some of his ideas, it is very interesting and worth contemplating. Another book I would highly recommend on this topic is 'The Ever-Transcending Spirit' by Toru Sato. It is a little more readable and also a tremendous attempt at integrating these types of theories. Both books should be on your must read list if you are interested in the intersection between psychology, philosophy, and spirituality.

This book introduces us to a very interesting integration of theories in Psychology and Philosophy. By putting a large variety of well-known theories together, the author explains how the spirit unfolds as we develop and evolve as living organisms. Although other people have tried this type of thing before, Wilber may be one of the best in the business. The only other thinker who is truly fantastic at this sort of thing is Toru Sato. His book 'The Ever-transcending Spirit' is so good it is just unbelieveable! Read it and you'll know what I'm talking about.
