Re: why IPS forum is not mentioned, I was re-reading some of the Wyatt Earp affair today. Therein the Lingam basically said that integral people no longer participate in them since forums are generally dominated by the MGM. That explains the kennilingus aversion, but I think more generally the academics feel a need to validate IT in that context, so the typically unacademic format of discussion forums is generally shunned because it will taint their credibility. Which is unfortunate, since there is a lot of good academic work done here too, just not formated in that style.

Paul Marshall was referenced earlier. His 2012 JITP article is here.

I don't think so.  IPS is definitely NOT on the radar in the inner circles, as far as i can tell.

I'm guessing he didn't mention us at IPS? Or any other forum exploring 'integral options,' as William might say?

Here's Visser's review of the conference.

My favorite quote (11:13) : 

Abraham Maslow said it well.  He said 'What we call normal in psychology is really a psychopathology of the average."

Did he use the Morin type of complexity or the MHC kind?

I heard Paul present informally on this (via Skype) at the CR symposium at the ITC last year and it was quite good.  The feedback he got from the members of the symposium was very enthusiastic.

This presentation looks interesting, combining IT with CR and complexity theory. It will also be a chapter in the upcoming book Metatheory for the 21st Century: Critical Realism and Integral Theory in Dialogue.

Here's the link to the conference, currently ongoing. Check back to see how it developed.

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.
