Who is Ken Wilber?

"Ken Wilber is one of the greatest philosophers of this century and arguably the greatest theoretical psychologist of all time."
                 --Roger Walsh, M.D., Ph.D., author, Essential Spirituality

"Ken Wilber is a national treasure."
                 --Robert Kegan, Harvard Graduate School of Education,
author, In Over Our Heads

Ken Wilber, at age 54, is the first philosopher-psychologist to have his Collected Works published while still alive, and, with his 25 books translated into some 30 foreign languages, the most widely translated academic writer in America.  Wilber is the internationally acknowledged leader of the integral revolution gathering momentum around the world.  He is the founder of Integral Institute and one of the hosts of Integral Naked.

His many books, all of which are still in print, can be found at Amazon.com.  Some of his more popular books include No Boundary; Grace and Grit; Sex, Ecology, Spirituality; and the "everything" books: A Brief History of Everything (one of his largest selling books) and A Theory of Everything (probably the shortest introduction to his work).  Of the numerous websites touching on his work, wilber.shambhala.com and integralinstitute.org are two of the most popular.

In addition to hosting many of the IN dialogues, Ken‘s own work has been featured on Integral Naked:
