Integral Theory and Social Activism
Summary: Integral Theory is a broad, all encompassing philosophy developed by Colorado based thinker, Ken Wilber. It is a one of kind, system for putting divergent political, historical, religious, and scientific ideas within a framework which respects both their similarities and differences. It also provides an optimistic vision of the future based on concrete, cross-discipline evidence. Figures who have mentioned integral theory as a major influence on lives and work include Al Gore, Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins, Larry Wachowski (The Matrix, V for Vendetta), and self-help author Deepac Chopra.
