Leading scholar-practitioners discuss the strengths, limits, and potential of Integral Theory and the AQAL model.

In a world as complex as ours, an Integral approach is needed to help sort through a dynamic landscape and respond effectively to individual and collective challenges. Integral Theory in Action provides the first multiauthored overview of such an approach. Integral Theory is the result of thirty years of research and is being applied in over thirty-five distinct disciplines. This volume brings together two dozen leading scholar-practitioners who are actively applying integral principles and who address a range of issues from an integral perspective, including climate change, embodiment, feminist aesthetics, community discourse, treatment of depression, developmental theory, and global ethics. The strengths, limitations, and potential of Integral Theory and Ken Wilber’s AQAL model are weighed by each contributor. This collection pushes the field of Integral Theory in new ways and new directions, and provides a comprehensive overview that makes it an invaluable resource for any integral effort.

“This represents the first flowering of a new theoretical movement that has potential implications for the full spectrum of disciplinary inquiry as well as for significant areas of practical application, from ethics and development assessment to climate change.” -- Sean M. Kelly, author of Coming Home: The Birth and Transformation of the Planetary Era
