In Collaboration with Integrales Forum, Germany
This six part online seminar provides an introduction to Jean Gebser’s life and integral philosophy; a guide through the structures of consciousness, leading us into the spiritual import of realizing integral consciousness in our present moment of cultural crisis and transformation. Special attention will also be brought to connecting Gebser’s integral philosophy to the “meta-crisis,” metamodernist currents, and manifestations of the integral world in contemporary culture.
Your lecturer, Jeremy Johnson, is a scholar who has spent the last decade working with Ever-Present Origin and an integral aperspectival approach to thinking about cultural evolution.
