From Library Journal Wilber (Sex, Ecology, Spirituality, Shambhala, 1995) takes on a tremendous task: attempting to derive from the tenets of the world's wisdom traditions, both religious and nonreligious, and from many academic fields one unifying vision of the modern and postmodern world. He calls his approach the "spectrum of consciousness," i.e., reducing aphorisms from various sources until they "agree" with each other, and using these as building blocks for his conclusions. Unfortunately, the long and difficult road Wilber takes us along leads to no grand religious or philosophical epiphany. The conclusions are a wash of poetic statements about an "ever-present awareness" or "a pure and simple witness," beliefs that are popular with New Age philosophies that require little of the deep discussions that preceded. Of interest mainly to theology students.?Glenn Masuchika, Chaminade Univ. Lib., HonoluluCopyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Review "This intellectually demanding yet engagingly written collection of essays explores a number of timely and important issues, such as the relationship between psychological and spiritual growth and the political implications of where we locate Spirit (God? Gaia?). Along the way, the author revisits his earlier books, revealing how his thought has developed and, in the process, introducing his central ideas to the first time reader."—Keith Thompson, San Francisco Chronicle
