The Evolution of Consciousness as a Planetary Imperative: An Integration of Integral Views

By Jennifer Gidley

In this large manuscript Gidley aims to broaden and deepen the evolution of consciousness discourse by integrating the integral theoretic narratives of Rudolf Steiner, Jean Gebser, and Ken Wilber, who each point to the emergence of new ways of thinking that could address the complex, critical challenges of our planetary moment.

Gidley undertakes a wide scan of the evolution discourse, noting it is dominantly limited to biology-based notions of human origins that are grounded in scientific materialism. The key focus of this monograph is to introduce integral evolutionary theories using a transdisciplinary epistemology and work between, across and beyond diverse disciplines.
