In contrast to fragmented and reductionistic approaches, Integral Theory offers more sophisticated meta-frameworks that can address the complex issues facing humanity.
MetaIntegral Foundation's academic initiatives are united by a common goal: to develop a professional academic discourse around integral frameworks and applications that offer an alternative to contemporary disciplinary fragmentation. Even multidisciplinary approaches, which reflect a sound integrative intuition, require metadisciplinary frameworks to realize their true integral potential. Over the last decade, Integral Theory has strengthened its academic presence through symposiums, conferences, textbooks, departments, research, and dissertations. Current members of MetaIntegral Foundation have been important scholar-practitioners in these regards. Mi Foundation is committed to supporting the growth of integral academics through a wide range of academic initiatives.
