"The twenty-first century literally has three choices: Aristotle, Nietzsche, or Ken Wilber."
-Jack Crittenden Ph.D.
If you haven’t already heard of him, Ken Wilber is one of the most important philosophers in the world today.

Incorporating cultural studies, anthropology, systems theory, developmental psychology, biology, and spirituality, it has been applied in fields as diverse as sustainability, psychotherapy, spirituality, education, business, medicine, politics, sports, and art.
