Suppose we took everything that all the various world cultures have to tell us about human potential—about psychological, spiritual, and social growth—and identified the basic patterns that connect these pieces of knowledge. What if we attempted to create an all-inclusive map that touches the most important factors from all of the world's great traditions?

Ken Wilber's Integral Vision provides such a map. Using all the known systems and models of human growth—from the ancient sages to the latest breakthroughs in cognitive science—it distills their major components into five simple elements, and, moreover, ones that readers can verify in their own experience right now.

In any field of interest, such as business, law, science, psychology, health, art, or everyday living and learning—the Integral Vision ensures that we are utilizing the full range of resources for the situation, leading to a greater likelihood of success and fulfillment. With easily understood explanations, exercises, and familiar examples, The Integral Vision shows how we can accelerate growth and development to higher, wider, deeper ways of being, embodied in self, shared in community, and connected to the planet, which can literally help with everything from spiritual enlightenment to business success to personal relationships.

Named one of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of the Year 2007.

"Philosopher, psychologist, and mystic Wilber delivers on the subtitle's far-reaching promise. . . . Chock full of handsome illustrations and spare, Zen-like diagrams and tables, Wilber's work here is still accessible and at times surprisingly practical. Some language spirals up majestically, recalling great Eastern texts. Reminiscent in spirit and watershed import of Ram Dass's Be Here Now, Wilber may well have created a popular classic for explorers on the frontiers of humanity."—Publishers Weekly

"[Wilber's] heady multidimensional approach is deciphered in this spiffy full-color paperback filled with pop culture graphics, tables, and charts. If you are interested in consciousness, complexity, maps, multiple intelligences, and more, here is a comprehensive philosophy that puts it all together."—Spirituality and Health


At last, an accessible book for anyone who wants to understand Ken Wilber's thought and its practical applications - both personal and global - in the quickest, easiest way possible. The key components of Wilber's Integral Approach - a tool for "making sense of everything" - are distilled here into a short, simple, and elegant presentation with full-colour illustrations. What is the Integral Approach? Suppose we took everything that all the various cultures have to tell us about human potential - about spiritual growth, psychological growth, and social growth - and tried to identify the critically essential patterns that connect these pieces of knowledge? What if we attempted, based on this extensive cross-cultural study, to create an all-inclusive map that includes the best elements from all of the world's great traditions? The Integral Approach provides just such a map. Using all the known systems and models of human growth - from the ancient shamans and sages to today's breakthroughs in cognitive science - it distills their major components into five simple factors, factors that can be verified in our own consciousness right now.

Whether we are working in business, psychotherapy, law, medicine or ordinary everyday living and learning, an Integral Approach ensures that we are utilizing the full range of resources for any situation - which means a greater likelihood of success. By providing a basic understanding of the key elements of the Integral Approach - including simple exercises and familiar examples from areas such as moral values, spirituality, health, business, ecology, and relationships - "The Integral Vision" shows readers how they can accelerate their own growth and development to higher, wider, deeper ways of being, and achieve greater excellence in personal and professional life. All of this is presented in a fun, flashy, accessible manner, so that readers easily understand how the Integral Approach is an exciting, valuable and relevant addition to their daily life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Top Notch 19. September 2007
This short book has been conceived as an introduction to Ken Wilber's thought and the AQAL model. It is explains how the model can be used as a map to ensure that we really adopt an integral approach to whatever it is we are tackling - whether it be a personal issue or a business project. The numerous illustrations and short, pithy outlines make it an ideal Beginner's Book.
For an understanding of why the Integral Vision is so important, I recommend reading Wilber's 'A Brief History Of Everything' and then tackle the various separate volumes on Integral Psychology, Integral Spirituality etc.
If you want to know more about Wilber the man, then read 'Grace and Grit' and 'One Taste' - both excellent - and log into his online resources.
When it comes to day-to-day practice, nothing is better than the Integral Life Practice Set which has been developed by the Integral Institute and has four separate modules - Body, Mind, Shadow and Spirit - as well as useful introductory booklets. This is an essential tool if you want to really implement the Integral Vision.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hat mein Leben verändert 16. Februar 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Endlich habe ich Religion und Spiritualität auseinander gekriegt und damit einen großen Bewußtseinssprung vollziehen dürfen, der sich sehr positiv auf viele meiner Lebensbereiche auswirkt. Wunderbare Modelle, die die Welt besser verstehen helfen. Nur der Part über die Unterschiedlichkeit von Menschen ist leider etwas kurz geraten.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Superb Overview of a Complex but Crucially Important Vision 30. August 2007
Von Dr. Richard G. Petty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I have been studying and enjoying Ken Wilber's writings for almost thirty years, so I am not a total newbie.

I have also liked the way in which, over the years, Ken has not been afraid to revise his position as new information and new insights have appeared. He has also reached a place familiar to anyone who is trying to push the envelope in any field:
At what point do you simplify to clarify?
When do you take the key components of a model or system and break it down into digestible chunks without dumbing it down or selling out?
And finally, how do you present it in a way that makes sense to people outside your narrow field?

Many philosophers and theorists simply do not bother: they write long treatises that will only be understood by a few of their peers, and as for explaining to the world at large? Forget it!

This short and visually stunning book lays out the bare bones of the most recent incarnation of Ken Wilber's model of life, the universe and everything. Here you will learn the basics about "quadrants," "levels," "lines," states" and "types." Not only what they are, but also why an understanding of them can pay enormous dividends in your own life and in providing insights into your personal psychological and spiritual development, as well as that of your children, family and society.

Nobody, least of all Ken himself, believes that this is the only model, or that the map is the same as the territory. But the model can be immensely valuable. Time alone will tell how well it can incorporate new data and insights without becoming a meta-theory that sounds good but has no predictive value. For that is where this whole project will live or die: its ability to predict and to be falsifiable. At the moment the indications are that this way of looking at the world is here to stay, and it would be well to know something about it.

I had doubts that the project would even be possible, and I am pleased to have been proven wrong. The book works extremely well as an introduction to the Integral model. But it should also be seen as something of a taster. If it whets your appetite, then you will probably want to explore some of the books, CDs and websites that have been created by Ken Wilber and Integral Institute.

This book is essential for anyone interested in psychological, social and spiritual growth, and I recommend it very highly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Finally, a great introduction to Wilber's work 19. August 2007
Von Ted Saad - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Having been an avid reader of Wilber's books for years, I have been deeply moved by his philosophy as it has helped me orientate and weave multiple perspectives in coherent and compelling way. Although this is far from my favorite book of his, I applaud it for what it is meant to be: a primer on integral theory for someone that is new to it and isn't ready to dive in too deeply. This is something I have been looking for a while, as I have often recommended Wilber's work to friends. When asked what was the first book they should read, I would often suggest "Brief History of Everything" (the abridged version to "Sex, Ecology, and Spirituality"). Still, for many of my friends not accustomed to reading philosophy, they felt that "Brief History" was a bit much.

"The Integral Vision" hits the right note for just about everyone, as it goes down easier than most of Ken's work, but still gets its point across thoroughly. This is still not light-weight material, however, most readers will find the attractive illustrations helpful and crisp non-academic prose refreshing. "The Integral Vision" also demonstrates that integral theory passes the "mother-in-law test": the idea that if you can't explain it simply and succinctly to her, it's probably too complicated and nonsensical to use. Any decent theory needs to be elegant for intellectuals and simplistic enough for everyone else. "The Integral Vision" successfully lays out quadrants, levels, lines, states, and types in both a manner of elegance and ease.

With integral theory, Wilber has brought something of a gift, albeit "true, but partial" (as he would put it), that has built on many philosophical foundations and resealed some cracks in the process. "The Integral Vision" is worth a look for newbies and Wilber fans who are looking for a gift read for friends.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Flawed but useful intro to Wilber 7. Oktober 2008
Von Nathaniel T. Parsons - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ken Wilber is a genius at synthesizing vast amounts of knowledge and human experience and thought and pulling them together into a single, coherent system. Everyone should know his work. The problem is, he sucks at trying to talk about it to normal people. Every time I read one of these attempts, I have to cringe as I imagine "wilber virgins" reading it. His most successful attempt so far I would have to say is "The Marriage of Sense and Soul", which doesn't go as far as this book (it's a much older work) but is MUCH easier to digest.

In this book Wilber tries so hard to be accessible he seems to be forcing a mickey mouse face on top of a buckminster fuller dome. I would steer people who want an "introduction" to Wilber away from this book and toward "A Theory Of Everything". Or do some pushups and take on Sex Ecology Spirituality if you've got the guts (I haven't yet). The thing is... given what Wilber has managed to do -- which is enormous and ground breaking in its scale and depth -- one can hardly expect him to re-learn how to talk to normal everyday idiots. But in my opinion, this book is damaged by its author's voice, which veers unevenly between being cute (ie. accessible) cursory (giving a shallow version of his ideas) and confusing (leaping into the deep end). The 'stoned kid with photoshop' graphics are mostly gratuitous and are there to break up text rather than add a layer of meaning or illustrate anything. The net effect is to preach to converts and not reach a new public, which was obviously his intent. I also think the structure of this book is flawed, getting too "spiritual/new age" too early. You have to start from what people can accept easily and build slowly from there, and he fails to do this, leaping too soon into material only a full fledged, bead wearing, incense burning, mantra chanting eco-putz would appreciate.

Sounds True put out a nice box set of disks of Wilber interviews that is a great way to familiarize yourself with Wilber, although it would help a lot if you read "Theory of Everything" at the same time. It's called Kosmic Consciousness. Also log on to youtube and search his name, there's lots of stuff there. You can also go to his site "integralnaked.com" but it suffers from a lot of the same myopia as this book, ie. annoying to the outsider. I mean come on. Couldn't they call it something other than Naked? I don't need to see Ken naked, thank you very much.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Integral Vision 25. Februar 2008
Von MKReinem - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This little book is an excellent introduction to Ken Wilber's "map" and would serve as an excellent outline for an introductory course on his theory. It gives a brief description of the states, stages/levels, types, lines and quadrants as well as the concepts of perspectives and holons and 'holarchies.' It's very easy to read and the format is bright and captivating (almost like a comic book.)

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not for the uninitiated 27. August 2007
Von J. W. Bolton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book was my introduction to Wilber's Integral Model/IOS/etc. I bought this because I hoped it would give me an overview. In some ways I guess it did, but not really. I get that there are quadrants and types and lines and levels, but I don't understand what they mean or how they interact and cohere. It's dense and cognitive. Normally I like dense and cognitive, but it's like reading Le Petit Prince in 7th Grade French Class. You get some of the words, not the meaning. I wanted to understand the essence of the process--for a newbie this isn't the way. There's a lot of insider jargon to contend with. I'm still interested in the Integral Model, but this isn't the 101 I hoped it would be. Or maybe I'm just Amber... Keep looking!
