The foundations for the integral framework have made an enormous impact on a number of disciplines, and Ken Wilber sees it as one of the best chances we have for creating an integrated, united, harmonious world system. In this talk, he runs through the fundamental components of the integral framework, touching on the essential elements.
Ken Wilber is one of the most important philosophers in the world today. According to Jack Crittenden Ph.D., author of Beyond Individualism, "The twenty-first century literally has three choices: Aristotle, Nietzsche, or Ken Wilber." He is the originator of arguably the first truly comprehensive or integrative philosophy, aptly named "Integral Theory." Incorporating cultural studies, anthropology, systems theory, developmental psychology, biology, and spirituality, it has been applied in fields as diverse as ecology, sustainability, psychotherapy, psychiatry, education, business, medicine, politics, sports and art. Ken Wilber is also the founder of the Integral Institute which is the first organization fully dedicated to advancement and application of the Integral Approach in relation to contemporary global issues.
