A Brief History of Everything' is an engaging, accessible and friendly excursion into the history of consciousness. Wilber examines the course of evolution as the unfolding manifestation of Spirit, from matter (the cosmos) to life (the biosphere) to mind (human consciousness), including the higher stages of spiritual evolution, when Spirit becomes conscious of itself. In each of these domains of evolution, he finds, there are recurring patterns, and by looking closely at these patterns, we can learn much about the predicament of our world and the direction humanity must take if global transformation is to become a reality. Written in question-and-answer format, 'A Brief History of Everything' is a compelling and provocative polemic about some of the most important issues of our time. 'Ken Wilber is the most important explorer of consciousness alive today.' Deepak Chopra 'Wilber helps us see the world as a whole and liberates us from narrow perspectives on the human adventure.' Michael Murphy, author of The Future of the Body 'Integrates the partial visions of specialists into a new understanding of the meaning and significance of life.' David Lorimer Other books by Ken Wilber Grace and Grit Marriage of Sense and Soul A Theory of Everything

Review:

"In the ambitiously titled A Brief History of Everything, Wilber continues his search for the primary patterns that manifest in all realms of existence. Like Hegel in the West and Aurobindo in the East, Wilber is a thinker in the grand systematic tradition, an intellectual adventurer concerned with nothing less than the whole course of evolution, life's ultimate trajectory--in a word, everything. . . . Combining spiritual sensitivity with enormous intellectual understanding and a style of elegance and clarity, A Brief History of Everything is a clarion call for seeing the world as a whole, much at odds with the depressing reductionism of trendy Foucault-derivative academic philosophy."--San Francisco Chronicle " In the ambitiously titled A Brief History of Everything, Wilber continues his search for the primary patterns that manifest in all realms of existence.
