Banyen's Description: 

Ken Wilber’s illuminating career as freelance transpersonal philosopher began with his publication of The Spectrum of Consciousness (1975), which in effect married Freud and the Buddha. In many books since, he has described the path of human development—the evolution of consciousness—systematically, comprehensively—and brilliantly

A Brief History of Everything, Wilber’s accessible and entertaining summary of his visionary ideas of the evolution of human consciousness and culture, has now been revised with 30 pages of new text and additional diagrams—and this 20th anniversary edition features a new afterword by Ken Wilber and Lana Wachowski.

This book is a friendly and accessible account of men and women’s places in a universe of sex, soul, and spirit. Wilber examines the course of evolution as the unfolding manifestation of Spirit, from matter to life to mind, including the higher stages of spiritual development where Spirit becomes conscious of itself. The author offers striking and original views of topics of current interest and controversy: gender wars, multiculturalism, and ecology and environmental ethics among them. The result is an extraordinary ride through the Kosmos.

“I cannot imagine a better way to be introduced to Ken Wilber than this book. It brings the debate about evolution, consciousness, and our capacity for transformation to an entirely new level. More practically, it will save you many missteps and wrong turns on whatever wisdom path you choose to take...

“Wilber serves in A Brief History of Everything as a demystifier and a debunker—a discerning critic of the teachers, techniques, ideas, and systems that promise routes to encompassing truth, but are more commonly incomplete, misleading, misguided, or distorted.”—Tony Schwartz, author of What Really Matters
