In this episode of The Daily Evolver video podcast, Jeff Salzman and I take a tour through the origins of integral philosophy, starting with G.W.F. Hegel, who first explained the mechanisms of evolution in human history, and on through a stream of philosophers who unified the evolution of matter, consciousness and spirit. I also discuss the line of developmental psychologists who defined the distinct stages of human growth including the emerging integral stage.
Bringing us to the present, I then appreciate and critique leading contemporary integral philosopher Ken Wilber.
Understanding the history of integral thought helps us situate ourselves in the lineage of a philosophy that has itself evolved – and continues to evolve with our participation.
