Sex, Ecology, Spirituality: The Spirit of Evolution is a 1995 book by integral philosopher Ken Wilber. Wilber intended it to be the first volume of a series called The Kosmos Trilogy, but subsequent volumes were never produced. The book has been both highly acclaimed by some authors and harshly criticized by others.

Sex, Ecology, Spirituality book. Jun 20, 2008 Travis rated it really liked it. Recommended to Travis by: Malek. Ken Wilber is a self-promoting, pompous ass, but this book is great. Weaves it (existence, psychology, sociology, life) all together in a highly derivative but brilliant work.

In this tour de force of scholarship and vision, 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.

You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world - John 8:23

My respect for Ken Wilber has gone from mild to high after re-reading this book with updated preface, discovering that he wrote this book in righteous anger, as he counters the worldwide infestation of Cultural Marxism, Pluralistic Relativism and full-blown Postmodernism - the sick, bankrupt, but dominant ideology propounded from every corner and crevice.

This book is a deep and masterly look at the concepts and realities of Hierarchy and Holarchy. It is an excellent carry on from the work of many holistically-minded thinkers, especially of Arthur Koestler who first conceived of holon theory.

To his credit, Ken does justice to the thought of Hegel, Schelling, Whitehead, Emerson and other Idealists and sages. I'd have liked it if he had have included the great George Berkeley. But few writers ever mention him and his ideas today, so it's not too surprising.

Nevertheless, if your interested in dismantling the principles of Materialism, this will be a veritable Bible. Ken takes down the silliness scientifically, which is a commendable feat and asset.

Ken brilliantly explains the central ideas of Jean Piaget and particularly of the great poet and thinker Ralph Waldo Emerson. There are also beautiful and inspiring sections dealing with the mystical experiences and insights of St. Teresa of Avila.

In forthcoming editions it would be nice to see bolder opening dedications to both Georg Hegel and Friedrich Schelling, and more on Berkeley of course.

I recommend Arthur Koestler's superb trilogy:
"Sleepwalkers"
"Ghost in the Machine"
and "Act of Creation"

These are a must have for fans of Ken's ideas. These three books are becoming increasingly hard to find, and soon will be selling for exorbitant mark ups. Get them while you can.

See my Schellingzone site for more titles and thinkers.

Mind blowing. Ken Wilbur is funny. He is academically accurate and discusses complex philosophical issues with great clarity and without watering down the subject. He builds a case for everything he suggests and bashes various points of view, without bashing the values behind the views. Feminists, ecology advocates, and in fact, the entire western civilization and devastated by Wilbur with pointed criticisms of where they veered off course.

An understandable description of the basics of living organisms on up through complex systems. Ken Wilber brings together the basic tenets of life - biological, social and spiritual.

As usual, Wilber presents a logically-unfolding argument and ties the threads of development together in a weave that illustrates a coherent picture of the human and our place in the interconnected web. I think he is the most important developmental philosopher of the century as, due largely to him, we now have good maps of human psychology-- and the places where its development can go wrong--that are badly needed by the therapeutic psychological arts.
On the other hand, Ken's books remain difficult to read because he is so concerned that his points get instilled, that he repeats/recapitulates his arguments in 10 different ways for each one! I'd give him 5 stars but for this.

This is a somewhat long and difficult read but it is worth the effort to understand the thinking of one of the most profound philosophers of our time.
Burilar
If you're at all interested in the nature of our existence--past, present, and future--the nature of nature, and the essence of Reality itself, you can find no better book. _SES_ is a stunning masterpiece, extremely readable (compelling, even), and I recommend it to anyone living this Divine dream we call life.

A gem of a book.
Not Wilber's best writing. In my opinion, his first book, "Spectrum of Consciousness," was his best writing, although his later work on AQAL/integral theory is very insightful. "Sex, Ecology, Spirituality" is a laborious 789 pages (including notes) that is so redundant that it seems the author is infatuated with his own prose, and takes 30 pages to say what I got in 1 page. In the note section, there are 3 notes that drone on for over 20 pages! And this is only the first of 3 volumes. It was such a turn off, that having just finished all 789 pages, I don't have any desire to take up volumes 2 and 3. That's not the sign of a good writer. I enjoyed his "Sense and Soul" as an audiobook, but found his conclusions in "Integral Spirituality" absurd. (See review). 3 stars is being generous.
