Wilber tells the story of humankind's evolutionary journey over some six million years, from its primal past to its dazzling cosmic future. For if men and women have come up from the beasts, Wilber says, they will likely end up with the gods. "Ken Wilber draws on evidence breathtaking in its sweep to outline a view of the trajectory of human evolution. In so doing, he joins the ranks of the grand theorists of human consciousness like Ernst Cassirer, Mircea Eliade, and Gregory Bateson."--Dr. Daniel Goldman, author of Emotional Intelligence Philosopher Ken Wilber has been mapping the territory of consciousness since the 1970s. His first book, The Spectrum of Consciousness, launched the transpersonal psychology movement.
