From Will Varey's ITC Downunder presentation on "Integral Explanatory Coherence: Consilience, Resonance, and Elegance"

"This presentation considers the relative contributions of multiple integral conceptions in forming coconstructive epistemologies. A method for examining the explanatory coherence of an integral theory is provided based on tests of explanatory worth. The presentation proposes a counterpart alternative to Integral Methodological Pluralism's three criteria of methodological value (i.e. non-exclusion, unfoldment and enactment). This approach is demonstrated by combinations of the dimensions of consilience, resonance and elegance. The proposal is made for a shift in our conversations from conceptual superiority to integral complementarity. The presentation concludes with an evocative description of an alternative to prescriptive ontologies, being a generative ontonomy."

Join Integral Post-Metaphysical Spirituality

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
