Ken Wilber

Fecha de nacimiento: 31. Enero 1949

Kenneth Earl Wilber Jr. , más conocido como Ken Wilber, es un escritor estadounidense cuyos intereses versan principalmente sobre filosofía, psicología, religiones comparadas, historia, ecología y misticismo. Wilber describe sus logros académicos como "una licenciatura en bioquímica y un doctorado en bioquímica y biofísica, con una especialización en el mecanismo de los procesos ópticos", pero pronto se decantaría por el abordaje filosófico.[1]​ Aunque con frecuencia se lo describe como un escritor New Age, su obra es severamente crítica con este movimiento.

Practicante de distintas técnicas budistas de meditación e incluso reconociendo su posición filosófica ampliamente influenciada por Nāgārjuna, Wilber no se identifica como budista.

„The integral approach is committed to the full spectrum of consciousness as it manifests in all its extraordinary diversity.“

—  Ken Wilber
The Eye of Spirit : An Integral Vision for a World Gone Slightly Mad (1997), Context: The integral approach is committed to the full spectrum of consciousness as it manifests in all its extraordinary diversity. This allows the integral approach to recognize and honor the Great Holarchy of Being first elucidated by the perennial philosophy and the great wisdom traditions in general.... The integral vision embodies an attempt to take the best of both worlds, ancient and modern. But that demands a critical stance willing to reject unflinchingly the worst of both as well.

„The single greatest world transformation would simply be the embrace of global reasonableness and pluralistic tolerance“

—  Ken Wilber, libro Sex, Ecology, Spirituality
Sex, Ecology, Spirituality (1995, 2000), the global embrace of egoic-rationality (on the way to centauric vision-logic).

„If humanity is ever to cease its swarming hostilities and be united in one family, without squashing the significant and important differences among us, then something like an integral approach seems the only way. Until that time, religions will continue to brutally divide humanity, as they have throughout history, and not unite, as they must if they are to be a help, not a hindrance, to tomorrow's existence.“

—  Ken Wilber
Why Do Religions Teach Love and Yet Cause So Much War?, Context: In my previous column I didn't spell out, or really indicate what an "integral approach" to spirituality would include. Many readers naturally assumed that this was simply another version of "universalism" — the belief that there are certain truths contained in all the world's religions. But the integral approach emphatically does not make that suggestion. Other readers maintained that I was offering a version of the "perennial philosophy" espoused by Aldous Huxley or Huston Smith. Does the integral approach believe that all religions are saying essentially the same thing from a different perspective? No, almost the opposite. Yet the integral approach does claim to be able to "unite," in some sense, the world's great spiritual traditions, which is what has caused much of the interest in this approach.

„With science we touch the True, the "It" of Spirit. With morals we touch the Good, the "We" of Spirit. What, then, would an integral approach have to say about the Beautiful, the "I" of Spirit itself? What is the Beauty that is in the eye of the Beholder? When we are in the eye of Spirit, the I of Spirit, what do we finally see?“

—  Ken Wilber
The Eye of Spirit : An Integral Vision for a World Gone Slightly Mad (1997), Context: The integral vision, I believe, is more than happy to welcome empirical science as a part — a very important part — of the endeavor to befriend the Kosmos, to be attuned to its many moods and flavors and facets and forms. But a more integral psychology goes beyond that... With science we touch the True, the "It" of Spirit. With morals we touch the Good, the "We" of Spirit. What, then, would an integral approach have to say about the Beautiful, the "I" of Spirit itself? What is the Beauty that is in the eye of the Beholder? When we are in the eye of Spirit, the I of Spirit, what do we finally see?

„It is the integrative power of vision-logic, I believe, and not the indissociation of tribal magic or the imperialism of mythic involvement that is desperately needed on a global scale.“

—  Ken Wilber, libro Sex, Ecology, Spirituality
Sex, Ecology, Spirituality (1995, 2000), Context: It is the integrative power of vision-logic, I believe, and not the indissociation of tribal magic or the imperialism of mythic involvement that is desperately needed on a global scale. For it is vision-logic with its centauric/planetary worldview that, in my opinion, holds the only hope for the integration of the biosphere and the noosphere, the supranational organization of planetary consciousness, the genuine recognition of ecological balance, the unrestrained and unforced forms of global discourse, the nondominating and noncoercive forms of federated states, the unrestrained flow of worldwide communicative exchange, the production of genuine world citizens, and the enculturation of female agency (i. e., the integration of male and female, in both the noosphere and the biosphere) — all of which, in my opinion, is nevertheless simply the platform for the truly interesting forms of higher and transpersonal states of consciousness lying in our collective future — if there is one.

„A full-spectrum approach to human consciousness and behavior means that men and women have available to them a spectrum of knowing — a spectrum that includes, at the very least, the eye of flesh, the eye of mind, and the eye of spirit.“

—  Ken Wilber
The Eye of Spirit : An Integral Vision for a World Gone Slightly Mad (1997), Context: An acknowledgment of the full spectrum of consciousness would profoundly alter the course of every one of the modern disciplines it touches — and that, of course, is an essential aspect of integral studies... A full-spectrum approach to human consciousness and behavior means that men and women have available to them a spectrum of knowing — a spectrum that includes, at the very least, the eye of flesh, the eye of mind, and the eye of spirit.

„Global consciousness is not an objective belief that can be taught to anybody and everybody, but a subjective transformation in the interior structures that can hold belief in the first place“

—  Ken Wilber, libro Sex, Ecology, Spirituality
Sex, Ecology, Spirituality (1995, 2000), Context: Global consciousness is not an objective belief that can be taught to anybody and everybody, but a subjective transformation in the interior structures that can hold belief in the first place, which itself is the product of a long line of inner consciousness development.

„This would be something added to one's religion, not subtracted from it. The only thing it would subtract (and there's no way around this) is the belief that one's own path is the only true path to salvation.“

—  Ken Wilber
An Integral Spirituality, Context: Attunement could occur through any of the great religions, but would be tied exclusively to none of them. A person could be attuned to an "integral spirituality" while still be a practicing Christian, Buddhist, New-Age advocate, or Neopagan. This would be something added to one's religion, not subtracted from it. The only thing it would subtract (and there's no way around this) is the belief that one's own path is the only true path to salvation.

„In other words, the real problem is not exterior. The real problem is interior.“

—  Ken Wilber, libro Sex, Ecology, Spirituality
Sex, Ecology, Spirituality (1995, 2000), Context: In other words, the real problem is not exterior. The real problem is interior. The real problem is how to get people to internally transform, from egocentric to sociocentric to worldcentric consciousness, which is the only stance that can grasp the global dimensions of the problem in the first place, and thus the only stance that can freely, even eagerly, embrace global solutions.

„We move from part to whole and back again, and in that dance of comprehension, in that amazing circle of understanding, we come alive to meaning, to value, and to vision“

—  Ken Wilber
The Eye of Spirit : An Integral Vision for a World Gone Slightly Mad (1997), Context: We move from part to whole and back again, and in that dance of comprehension, in that amazing circle of understanding, we come alive to meaning, to value, and to vision: the very circle of understanding guides our way, weaving together the pieces, healing the fractures, mending the torn and tortured fragments, lighting the way ahead — this extraordinary movement from part to whole and back again, with healing the hallmark of each and every step, and grace the tender reward.
