Ken Wilber

It is a holistic practice that develops three paths of wisdom, devotion and compassionate action, unlike traditional education without heart, mechanical, partial, superficial, with this involving spirituality. A fundamental basis in holistic education are the three influences for its development, which are the perennial philosophy, new paradigms and the work of great pedagogues such as Plato, Jose Vasconcelos, Comenius, Pestalozzi, Antonio Caso, among many others. In the proposal Education holistic integrates the wisdom of the new and the old, there are great people with great thoughts as Plato and Buddha and their knowledge are integrated with the new thinkers like Ken Wilber, Sam Keen, Peter Russel Holistas, the holistic education integrates the best of each knowledge produced by humanity throughout its history to generate a view of totality. With this vision is holistic form integral human beings in which spirituality is developed to modify bad that now is observed and to promote solidarity, peace, harmony, tolerance, patience, dialogue, democracy, compassion love, fraternity, kindness among other things that present-day man is hungry. In this book, what struck me most positively was the understanding of the relationships that exist between the educator and students, Dr. Gallegos called epistemological relations and declares which are given three different forms, the object object this isn’t reactive there is interaction, there is no subjectivity; the second relationship is the subject object and is performed between human beings and the natural world, is systemic, linear, instrumentation and behavioral, is the relationship of a mechanistic teacher, who did not consider his student as a being with own reasoning; the third relationship is that of subject subject is the relationship between human, cultural and significant subjects, mediated by language, intentionality, understanding and mutual interest, is what gives meaning to our lives, because education begins through an understanding of the other. In this work shows its multilevel model and Multidimension sets where five whole levels in education (individual, social, community, Planetarium and kosmico) and binds them with the dimensions of being (cognitive, social, emotional, spiritual and bodily aesthetics) and this comes from the comprehensive vision for the formation of human beings with academic knowledge but with consciousness of being in all its dimensions, an education for life, which serves the development of the new man of the 21st century on a global basis.
