The integral worldview represents the next crucial step in the development of our civilization. Through its enlarged understand- ing of the evolution of consciousness and culture, the emerging perspective known as integral consciousness provides realistic and pragmatic solutions to our growing global problems, both environ- mental and political. As Steve McIntosh convincingly demonstrates, the integral worldview’s transformational potential provides a way to literally become the change we want to see in the world.
This is really two books in one: the first half serves as an accessible and highly readable introduction to the power of integral conscious- ness, with the second half making a variety of original contributions to the integral perspective and breaking new ground in the applica- tion of integral philosophy to politics and spirituality. Moreover, McIntosh provides a much-needed contextualization and critique of the integral worldview’s leading author, Ken Wilber, which helps make integral philosophy relevant to a larger audience.
