  The Meaning of 2nd-person: Response to “Integral 2.0” and “There is No ‘You’ in AQAL”

 The Meaning of 2nd-person: Response to “Integral 2.0” and “There is No ‘You’ in AQAL”
Ken Wilber

There has been, for quite some time, a considerable misunderstanding about how the AQAL Integral Framework views 2nd person (e.g., “you,” “thou”). I haven’t helped this, because although I’ve explained it, it is somewhat technical, and I myself have occasionally slipped into an easier, simpler introductory—but technically not quite right—way of describing it. But there was yet another presentation at this year’s Integral Theory Conference that gave the same bad misunderstanding (accompanied with some other serious inaccuracies), at least as I see it, so I thought it was time to address this fully.

The confusion stems around just exactly what “2nd person” means—because there are two very different meanings, and these are constantly confused. There is also a major confusion about just what has to happen for a “you” to actually become a real “you.” AQAL fully allows all of these meanings to be clearly differentiated—but it is exactly this lack of differentiation that causes the misunderstandings (and misunderstandings that virtually all of AQAL’s critics in this area perpetuate themselves).

May 21, 2015 16:29
with Gail Hochachka and Ken Wilber

Ken Wilber discusses the idea of "Basic Moral Intuition" (BMI) with the Integral Without Borders team—the idea that everyone has a general intuition of morality, but each person has to actually bring it into practice and make it relevant in one's own unique context. "The intuition is given; the unpacking is our moral dilemma, always," says Ken Wilber. How can this understanding help us make better choices for ourselves and for the world? Listen to find out!
