With which Ken Wilber book should I start?

Which of his books do you think are his most important and that maybe are easier to read? I’m not the biggest reader 😄

No, only the major ones like integral psychology. So undervalued. Instead mofos trying to reinvent the wheel here on this forum.

"No boundary" was a my first read and I think it's the easiest one.

Wilber is not the most accessible writer, although it helps he repeats himself a lot so you have more occasions to grasp what he has meant.

@StarStruck Don't be offensive.

"Reinventing the wheel" as in understanding its nature, from scratch. This demands experiential investigation, not adopting hearsay as true. Otherwise, reading books would suffice.

'The Integral Vision' is a pocket sized introduction to his work that can be read in a few days.

If after that, you find that you're connecting with his philosophy and want a longer and more substantive introduction, 'A Theory of Everything' would be the next one to pick up.

'Sex, Ecology, Spirituality' is generally considered to be his magnus opus, and explores Integral Theory (ie the philosophy that undergirds almost all of Wilber's work) in a ton of depth. But it's also 1000 plus pages and not for the faint of heart (though in fairness despite its length he does a reasonably good job of using an accessible writing style ).

Agree with this. "No Boundary" is a good start.

No Boundary -> Integral spirituality + integral psychology -> brief history of everything -> Sex, ecology, spirituality -> the Religion of Tomorrow

The best book would be his lightest in most likelihood.
