With over two-dozen published books translated in up to thirty different languages, Ken Wilber has created what is widely considered the first truly comprehensive Integral Map of human experience. By exploring and integrating the major insights and conclusions of nearly every human knowledge domain in existence, Wilber created the revolutionary AQAL Integral Framework. As Wilber himself puts it: “I’d like to think of it as one of the first believable world philosophies.” 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.
In short, the Integral Approach is the coherent organization, coordination, and harmonization of all of the relevant practices, methodologies, and experiences available to human beings. Wilber states: “You can’t [realistically] honor various methods and fields, without showing how they fit together. That is how to make a genuine world philosophy.”
In 1997 Wilber founded the Integral Institute, a nonprofit think tank dedicated to the advancement and application of the Integral Approach in relation to contemporary global issues.
In 2007 Wilber co-founded Integral Life, a social media-hub dedicated to sharing the integral vision with the world wide community.
In 2014 Wilber co-founded Source Integral and began developing the Integral Society initiative, which in collaboration with recognized global experts, will demonstrate how to develop human societies in the most comprehensive manner possible.
Wilber is Ubiquity University’s inaugural chancellor, two years running.
