Combining contemplative inspiration with the work of Erich Neumann, and a good dose of advanced psychoanalysis (Particurally Norman Brown), Wilber delivers to mankind in a single volume answers to most cutting edge questions of life - Who are we? Why are we here? How did we get here? Why are things the way they are? Where are we going? This is an altogether brilliant synthesis of the concepts from the non-dual schools (Plotinus, Aurobindo, Rig Veda, etc), with the more recent discoveries from emergent evolution, and the evolution of consciousness (Neumann's / The Origins and History of Consciousness). The story is all at once fascinating and compelling, as Wilber takes us on a detailed tour of mankind's journey from pre-self awareness, to self-awareness, and the concomiant implications for Spirit, as it strives to fully manifest itself through the awakening soul of mankind.
