Integral Philosophy and Postmodern Perspectives
School of Consciousness and Transformation PARA 6694 3.00
In the academic world, mention of Post-Modernism can be met with rather fierce disapprobation. It is common for 'opponents' to view Post-Modern thought as mere nihilism, where no fact or no 'truth' is allowed to exist and anarchy and danger reigns. This course may give a counter to these strongly felt views. There are those in the Integral 'tradition' and those who study it, who feel that it is defined and delimited by the views of Sri Aurobindo and Mother and that those who don't center their discourse and practice on the august guidance of these two teachers can't possibly be doing the Integral Yoga. (And how could the Integral Yoga, a well-defined 'tradition' in their understanding, possibly have a connection to Post-Modern thought, an obvious secular enemy?) This course may give a counter to these strongly felt views.
