As citizens of the 21st century, we have more knowledge at our fingertips than any previous generation could have imagined. But as fields of knowledge become increasingly specialized, it gets harder and harder to see how all of these disparate strands of understanding could possibly integrate into a unified whole. How do science and religion fit together? Is one right and the other wrong? Or are they both telling us truths about different aspects of a single reality? Is there a theory large enough to embrace it all? Ken Wilber has dedicated his life to finding just such a theory. Basing his work on the premise that "everyone is right about something," he has for the past three decades worked tirelessly to weave all fields of knowledge together into an "integral, theory of everything." In this program, the man known by many as "the Einstein of consciousness" shares how he came to develop his groundbreaking integral philosophy, and explains how this "theory of everything" can help to unite our fragmented world. (hosted by Craig Hamilton)


Ken Wilber is the world's leading "Integral Philosopher." He is the author of over 20 books on consciousness, spirituality, science, psychology, and what he has come to call "integral philosophy."
