Final Comments to Wilber's Recent Blog Postings Frank Visser July 3, 2006
A way out of this is, in my opinion, describing integral without the hype, the arrogance, the overconfidence, the exaggeration, the hyperbole. Let's get back to business, and rethink the real issues of integral philosophy, Wilber's or anyone's. Starting today, Integral World will proceed with a different focus: a wider definition of integral, including and transcending Ken Wilber. As a start, read part one of Alan Kazlev's series: "Towards a larger definition of the integral. Part One: Historical and Comparative use of Integral''". Let's remember that integral philosophy is wider then Ken Wilber's version of it – a fact he readily acknowledges – and that other versions of it can and should be explored. But also, I would like to add, that a critical analysis of Wilber's theoretical proposals outside of the in-group context of the integral organizations, would be very timely. So not only "integrally informed", but "sceptically informed" as well. Integral World has been a productive website with many essays freely contributed from all over the world, securing a stable readership by those who are appreciative of this effort. Thanks to everyone who responded with encouragement in the past weeks!
