In this tour de force of scholarship and vision, Ken Wilber traces the course of evolution from matter to life to mind and describes the common patterns that evolution takes in all three of these domains. From the emergence of mind, he traces the evolution of human consciousness through its major stages of growth and development. He particularly focuses on modernity and postmodernity: what they mean; how they impact gender issues, psychotherapy, ecological concerns, and various liberation movements; and how the modern and postmodern world conceive of Spirit. This second edition features forty pages of new material, new diagrams, and extensively revised notes.

Industry Reviews

"A timely and bold wake-up call for humanity."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Hugely informed, outspoken, and deeply illumined, Ken Wilber's penetrating insights uplevel the whole game of understanding human beings and human history."--Branches of Light

"The scope of the work is extraordinary. Only a handful of thinkers, such as Aurobindo in the East and Hegel in the West, have assembled such vast evolutionary visions. Yet Wilber's view is unique not only in providing a far-reaching vision but also in grounding that vision in contemporary research in fields such as cosmology, biology, anthropology, sociology, psychology, and ecology."--Roger Walsh, Resurgence

"Wilber possesses the rare combination of a deep, advanced spiritual practice with a sharp wit, brain power and scholarship to rival the finest Princeton Ph.D. . . . Sex, Ecology, Spirituality rewards the reader with a comprehensive, nondualistic, and sophisticated analysis of our world and consciousness."--Green Living

"Wilber's book is essential reading as a transplanetary survey of our problems and our possibilities. This is a book to live with for the next five years, and carry with you long into the next century."--David Boadella, Journal of Family Life

"Wilber is without a doubt one of the most significant thinkers of our time and brings a fresh understanding to our cultural situation and the prospects for an integral worldview in the next century. He displays a staggering erudition . . . a profound intuitive understanding and a highly developed analytical capacity. The combination is breathtaking. . . . Any thinker concerned with the big picture will find Wilber's work a gold-mine of insights which make compulsory reading for the 21st century."--Network: The Scientific and Medical Network Review

"Exhaustive exploration of the history of consciousness."--Parabola

"I think the most significant recent development in the field [of Transpersonal Psychology] is the publication of Ken Wilber's book, Sex, Ecology, Spirituality . I would encourage anyone interested in exploring the field in depth to read this volume."--Gnosis Magazine

"The twenty-first century literally has three choices: Aristotle, Nietzsche, or Ken Wilber. This book, written with remarkable scholarly breadth and depth, is exactly the medicine we need for the new century and the new millennium: not because it will make us feel good, which it surely might, but because it can jolt us awake."--Jack Crittenden, Ph.D., author of Beyond Individualism
