Author Info
Ken Wilber
Ken Wilber received an M.A. in biochemistry and biophysics from the University of Nebraska. SPECTRUM OF CONSCIOUSNESS, his first book, was published when he was 23 years old. All of his work can be seen as one large project: an effort to find a unified theory of consciousness. He draws from the wisdom traditions of the East, from psychology, and from modern science. He studied with Chogyam Trungpa, the Tibetan spiritual leader. A prolific author of books and articles, Wilber co-founded a journal devoted to his work and other New Age issues called ReVisions. He has worked for Shambhala Press as general editor of their New Science Library series. One of his more personal books is GRACE AND GRIT, in which he writes about his wife's battle with terminal cancer. Selections of his journals were published as ONE TASTE.
