    One thought on “Up from Eden: A Transpersonal View of Human Evolution”

    1. WOW. If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. Not the first of his I've read, but the one I've paid most attention to so far in terms of re-reading sections and thinking deeply on it. If you have an interest in the evolution of human spirituality and the search for Spirit and higher consciousness, then his books will speak to you. He has an amazing ability to tie together history, sociology, psychology, philosophy, and religious studies in one whole "big picture" package -- his vision never [...]

    2. Ken Wilber is simply the greatest living philosopher and is considered to be the one man to successfully unite easter and western thought into an intelligent synthesized whole. Your IQ will grow 20 points reading any one of his books.

    3. This is the most significant book I've ever read. It is a work of pure genius. It is a must read for the searcher. Magnificent.

    4. This and 'The Atman Project' see Wilber's writing at it's most dangerous (I believe this is 'Wilber II' by his own terms but I'm a but rusty on such definitions), dangerous by Wilber's standards, don't expect Burroughs, never the less, if you're familiar with Wilber's writing and haven't read this, you may be surprised by how much attitude the voice of the narrator contains, it seems like he still has something to prove to his readers and to himself before he 'evolves' into the more placid map m [...]

    5. Wilber is not scholarly. For an informed critical review of Up from Eden, see Kevin R.D. Shepherd's Ken Wilber, Up from Eden.

    6. This book completely reframed my understanding of humanity in a wonderful way. Drawing on mythology and psychology, as well as his deep understanding of eastern metaphysics, Mr. Wilber explains how to understand human history as the evolution of consciousness.

    7. One of Ken Wilber's earliest works. Many of of his theories evolved since this book, but it's still one of my favorites of his.

    8. Brilliant work on the entire history of mankind that felt like it took as long to read is it did to occur

    9. this book, written along with it's companion book, The Atman Project, explores humans ability to transcendtheir previous mode of being and evolve toward Godhead.

    10. Ken Wilber is an incredible intellectual and author. He is a great source for those of us who enjoy exploring the crossroads between philosophy, science, and spirituality.
