The Mission of the Integral Theory Conference
To be the world’s premier conference dedicated to Integral Theory and its application in both academic and professional contexts.
To facilitate the theoretical development of Integral Theory by drawing on the most sophisticated integrative meta-theories and transdisciplinary scholarship currently available.
To provide a forum in which metadisciplinary and transdisciplinary scholars and practitioners can present research findings and best practices in an atmosphere of engaged, critical discourse with others of similar qualifications and interests.
To encourage robust production of professional and academic literature, provide networking opportunities, and enable collaborative project-creation among integral scholars and professionals.
To bring the quality of scholarship in metadisciplinary and transdisciplinary studies to a level fully on par with the standards of excellence expected by the mainstream academy, while simultaneously generating increased openness to multiperspectival approaches to the study of human society and its environment.
To foster a non-parochial, global academic community that is open to multiple frameworks and methodologies that would seek to engage issues of complexity and epistemological integration.
To offer students of Integral Theory, graduate students, and practitioners access to the world’s leaders in the field.
To explore the historical antecedents and cultural influences that have contributed to the creation of Integral Theory; these currently suggest that Integral Theory is the most recent expression of a mode of integrative thought and praxis that extends back to at least the mid-eighteenth century.
