Participatory Spirituality for the 21st Century
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."
