A promotion of monography “Integrative Theory of Ken Wilber” written by anthropologist Vanja Borš will be held on The Faculty for Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb, Croatia on 11th January, by book reviewers Ph.D. Lino Veljak and Ph.D. Vjekoslav Afrić critics. Ken Wilber is famous for his transpersonal approach to life through scientific use of holon/holistic mythology, religion and art archetypes. Croatian Integral Society stresses correctly: “Using an integral approach we are attempting to integrate, balance, that is, coordinate the highest-quality work of everything from science, philosophy, art, ethics, spirituality, etc. of all traditions and time periods.” 

“With such an all-inclusive and contextually-adaptive approach which embraces all levels (waves, nests etc.) of reality (physiosphere, biosphere, noosphere and theosphere) through self, culture and nature by using intentional, behavioral, cultural and social aspects of being, but not leaving out or giving preference to any one of those, we are reaching for the goal of actualizing the primary perennial idea embedded in all traditions of authentic teachings that is unity-in-diversity and diversity-in-unity. The main purpose, therefore, is not the creation of uniformity, but in identifying commonalities while respecting the wealth of differences. The accent is placed on a meta-approach which aims to transcend, but also include, mere reductionism (atomism, elementarism etc.) and holism (systemic approach, organic approach etc.), that is, it promotes integral perspectivism.” (Croatian Integral Society)
