ITC 2015: Integral Impacts
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.
ITC 2013: Connecting the Integral Kosmopolitan
From July 18 - 21, 2013, MetaIntegral Foundation hosted the 3rd international Integral Theory Conference, the world’s largest academic conference devoted to the field of Integral Theory and practice. Upwards of 500 people from 30 countries gathered in San Francisco, California.
The theme of the third ITC event was: Connecting the Integral Kosmopolitan. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a cosmopolitan person holds a view that is “worldwide rather than limited or provincial in scope or bearing.”
The Integral Kosmopolitan has this expansive understanding of the integral field—one that sees integral as a broad and diverse tradition constituted of multiple authors, lineages, and influences. ITC 2013 brought together Integral Kosmopolitans to connect and engage with one another, so that we may continue to enact integral as a burgeoning academic discipline.
