Evolution is universal in this masterful survey by Phipps of the diverse ideas that make up the emerging field of Integral thought. By presenting “culture, consciousness, and the cosmos” as dynamic and interrelated areas of expansion, mind and matter alike are viewed as part of “a vast process of becoming.” The aim is to incorporate science and faith by broadening the definition and scope of what evolution is understood to be. While concepts like transhumanism, complexity science, spiral dynamics, and the noosphere will be new to many readers, Phipps, EnlightenNext editor, explains them thoroughly and makes a strong case for their legitimacy. In the process, the lives of several theorists—from 20th century sages such as Teilhard de Chardin and Sri Aurobindo to contemporary intellectuals like Ken Wilber and Andrew Cohen—are examined. These “evolutionaries” are shown to possess a worldview that is optimistic yet realistic, both rational and spiritual. The author, too, appears to share this mindset. His writing projects a palpable sense of positivity and excitement for what is to come. Agent: Natasha Kern. (July)
