ITH5061 Integral Spirituality

Course Description

This course will look at the world’s great religions and examine their unique role in pre-modern times as well as their increasingly important yet surprising role in the modern and postmodern world. Based largely on Wilber’s recent book Integral Spirituality, students will explore in depth what these religions might offer today’s world. Key concepts to be covered include integral post-metaphysics, myths of the given, and the conveyor belt. Specific emphasis is placed on first-, second-, and third-person methodologies for understanding this material and for synthesizing and applying it to one’s life practice.
