The Integral Approach was developed by American philosopher Ken Wilber. It is a postmetaphysical map of reality. The Integral Approach includes the inside and outside of every occasion from the individual and collective perspectives. It includes four other elements: levels, lines, states, and types.
In terms of chiropractic and its philosophy, the Integral Approach is essential. It may help the profession to overcome many philosophical stumbling blocks and inner conflicts, while fully embracing scientific rigor, internal experience, cultural authority, as well as social and economic realities. Never before has chiropractic had the tools to transcend its past while including the very best that past has to offer.
