Sex, Ecology, Spirituality: The Spirit of Evolution, Second Edition

Authors: Ken Wilber
Date: 2001

See link to related blog

In this tour de force of scholarship and vision, Integral Philosopher, Ken Wilber, traces the course of evolution from matter to life to mind and describes the common patterns that evolution takes in all three of these domains. From the emergence of mind, he traces the evolution of human consciousness through its major stages of growth and development. He particularly focuses on modernity and postmodernity: what they mean; how they impact gender issues, psychotherapy, ecological concerns, and various liberation movements; and how the modern and postmodern world conceive of Spirit. This second edition features forty pages of new material, new diagrams, and extensively revised notes.
