Summaries
Long Description
Spheres of Awareness: Wilberian Integral Approaches to Literature, Philosophy, Psychology, and Art moves toward building a new and more comprehensive theory of literature, philosophy, psychology, and art. The extremely popular work of Ken Wilber unites the best of both western and eastern thought and affirms that the stages of consciousness, more refined than that of the reasoning mind, do exist. These stages culminate in awareness of Spirit, or what Buddhism has called Emptiness. Spheres of Awareness shows us how applying Wilber's theoretical templates can broaden and deepen our approaches to literature, philosophy, psychology, and art.
