For an advanced introduction to the Integral Approach, please read the articles and chapters below.
States are a basic element of the Integral Approach. In regards to understanding the philosophy of chiropractic, states are essential. In that respect, an advanced understanding of the Integral Approach is necessary to more fully integrate states into the philosophy.
- Published in the Oxford Handbook of Religion and Science in 2006, Toward a Comprehensive Integration of Science and Religion: Integral Post Metaphysics by Sean Esbjörn-Hargens and Ken Wilber, is a great introduction to the latest concepts in Integral Studies.
- Wilber’s postmetaphysical approach was originally mapped out in a series of online excerpts that were meant to develop into his next book. All of the Excerpts are available on Wilber’s website and really pave the way for the future of Integral Studies. Integral Postmetaphysics and Integral Methodological Pluralism are essential to developing the philosophy of chiropractic. Few people realize that Wilber’s latest book is contained in these excerpts.
- Excerpt A: An Integral Age at the Leading Edge.
- Excerpt B: The Many Ways We Touch: Three Principles Helpful for An Integral Approach.
- Excerpt C: The Ways We Are In This Together
- Excerpt D: The Look of a Feeling: The Importance of Post/Structuralism
- Excerpt G: Toward a Comprehensive Theory of Subtle Energies
- Elements of the innovative insights from these excerpts developed into one of Wilber’s latest books, Integral Spirituality: A Startling New Role for Religion in the Modern and Postmodern World. With Wilber’s permission, we have posted an early version of this book, originally written for the Integral Spiritual Center in 2005:
