Customer Review

on 12 April 2009
The real attraction of this book is the scope and the volume of concepts from established philosophers thrown in. Unfortunately none of these have the same Q&A opportunity to comment on Wilbur's paraphrasing of their own ideas or his energetic attempts to blend them.Instead its left to his imaginary friend who doesn't offer anything in the way of a challenge to the ideas presented.
The negatives of this book are 1)obsessive categorisation 2)tenuous and misleading argumentation-including falling into the philosophical paradoxes it identifies and 3)Conclusions (especially the AQUAL model)that dont really lead to much practical other than 'lead a holistic life'(considering balance and the I, the We and the it in all things).
The positives-1)it does cover a lot of ground,even whilst missing 99.9% of paradigms 2) I'll make you think and 3)for all his limitations Wilbur is part of the solution not the problem. Hopefully others will contribute to that solution.
