Here is a concise, comprehensive overview of Wilber's revolutionary thought and its application in today's world. In A Theory of Everything, Wilber uses clear, nontechnical language to present complex, cutting-edge theories that integrate the realms of body, mind, soul, and spirit. He then demonstrates how these theories and models can be applied to real-world problems in areas such as politics, medicine, business, education, and the environment. Wilber also discusses daily practices that readers take up in order to apply this integrative vision to their own everyday lives.

"Wilber's 'integral vision' offers readers the opportunity to make valuable connections among disparate disciplines and--just maybe--to prepare themselves for a brave new world."--Publishers Weekly "A soaring tour de force and daring exposition by one of America's most inventive thinkers. Don't quit the search for an integral culture until you have given it a whirl--and take this book with you as a sturdy guide."--Professor Harvey Cox, Harvard Divinity School

"Ken Wilber is one of the most creative spiritual thinkers alive today, and A Theory of Everything is an accessible taste of his brilliance. Like a masterful conductor, he brings everyone in, finds room for science and spirit, and creates music for the soul."--Rabbi Michael Lerner, author of The Politics of Meaning
