Description

This is the definitive guide to the life and work of Ken Wilber, widely regarded as the most comprehensive and passionate philosopher of our times. In this long overdue exploration of Wilber's life and work, Frank Visser not only outlines the theories of this profound thinker, but also uncovers his personal life, showing how his experiences influenced and shaped his writing. Wilber's impressive body of work, including nineteen books in more than thirty languages, brings together science and religion, philosophy, art, culture, East and West, and places them within the all-encompassing perspective of evolution. Visser's book follows Wilber's four distinct phases as he reveals not only the story behind Wilber's writing, but also the man behind the ideas. In recounting the course of Wilber's life and the motives that led him to the subjects he has written so much about, Visser uncovers the intricacies of one of the world's most important intellectuals. Included in this indispensable resource is a complete bibliography of Wilber's work.

Review quote

"Finally, in a single highly readable edition we have a description of the life and work of one of the most controversial and profound thinkers of our age. Despite, or indeed because of, the prodigious number of books, articles, and interviews that Ken Wilber has produced over the years, most readers know little of the history of his intellectual, spiritual, or private lives, and only a few have attempted to keep track of the complex and fascinating intricacies of his thinking on topics as diverse as transpersonal psychology, religion, sociology, and European philosophy. In these pages we get both the big picture and a good read. Here is a gift to everyone interested in the life and work of a spiritual and philosophical genius."
