"Truth or Wilber?"
Frank Visser's 20 min presentation
for the Critics Section of the
Integral European Conference 2014
"Frank Visser presents his main criticisms of the work of Ken Wilber. He shares a bit about his personal background and his relationship with Wilber. Then he outlines his opinion in which areas to listen to what Wilber has to say - and where rather not to. In the end he concludes with a statement of gratitude."
 While preparing the text of this talk, I changed my mind about how to phrase the title: "Truth or Wilber?" or "Wilber or Truth?". Initially I opted for "Truth or Wilber?", as in "Truth or Dare?". This embodies a question to the audience: "Are you looking for Truth, or do you want to be inspired by Wilber?". Later, I prefered "Wilber or Truth?", as an answer to the question: "What is it you are looking for in this conference?"
