Ken Wilber's Integral Vision: A Review of Applications in Education toward a "Wisdom Culture"
Fisher, R. Michael
Online Submission
For over 30 years, contemporary American integral philosopher, Ken Wilber, has challenged all of us to critically examine how biased, if not distorted, our current forms of thinking and knowledge are, and what kind of education ought to be developed in order to build, what he refers to as, a future "Wisdom Culture." To date, no critical synthesis of Wilber's work and its relationship to the field of Education has been attempted. This paper offers three real classroom vignettes demonstrating the application of Wilber's integral approach, set within an opening fictional narrative. The remainder of the paper synthesizes an extensive search of Educational documents, and provides a critical review of 16 professional educators, from both schooling and adult education, who have published writing on applications and potential of Wilber's philosophy, toward laying the groundwork for future educational engagement with the integral approach. (Contains 64 footnotes.)
