The Natural Theology of Beauty, Truth and Goodness, Steve McIntosh

And I can fully understand the frustration that many have expressed about the shortcomings of some of the integral movement's leaders. Criticisms are certainly appropriate in many cases, and in my new book I do advance a number of critiques of Ken Wilber's work. Embracing the True, the Good, and the Beautiful.
