From the Big Bang to the Eight Primordial Perspectives

Ken Wilber offers a stunning introduction to the major components of Integral theory and practice — a guided tour that takes us from the very first forms to emerge in the universe, all the way to the eight primordial perspectives that all of our knowledge is constructed from.

In the first part, Ken shares how his work has evolved over the decades. He begins with his very first book, The Spectrum of Consciousness, which explored the developmental sequence that all human beings grow through. He then discusses how this sequence was expanded via the Good, the Beautiful, and the True, which soon evolved into the Four Quadrant model that he is so well known for.

In the second part, Ken takes an in-depth look at the 8 primordial perspectives of integral theory — put simply, looking at each of the four quadrants from both a subjective and an objective point of view, which reveals the eight fundamental “zones” of perspective available to us, as well as the sorts of methodologies that disclose each of these zones.

In order to make these ideas a bit easier to grasp, we also include multiple illustrations and visualizations throughout the presentation, which will hopefully help bring these ideas to life for you as you watch.
