Synopsis: Breve historia de todas las cosas es una excursión extraordinaria a través del Kosmos. En un viaje para cortar el aliento, desde el Big Bang hasta el mundo postmoderno en que vivimos, Ken Wilber analiza el universo y nuestro lugar en él –y nos brinda una crónica accesible y entretenida de cómo se entrelaza y funciona todo. Por el camino echa luz no sólo sobre las grandes preguntas cósmicas sino sobre diversos asuntos muy debatidos de nuestros días, como la ética ambiental, las relaciones de género, el multiculturalismo e incluso el sentido del Internet. En cada uno de estos terrenos hay patrones repetitivos que, si los examinamos con cuidado, pueden enseñarnos mucho acerca de los problemas de nuestro mundo, y en qué dirección debemos encaminarnos para que la transformación planetaria se vuelva realidad.

A Brief History of Everything is an extraordinary ride through the Kosmos. In a breathtaking trip from the Big Bang to the Postmodern world we inhabit, Ken Wilber examines the universe and our place in it—and comes up with an accessible and entertaining account of how it all fits together. Along the way he sheds light not only on the great cosmic questions but on various contentious issues of our day, such as environmental ethics, gender relations, multiculturalism, and even the meaning of the Internet. In each of these domains, there are recurring patterns, and by looking closely at them, we can learn much about the predicament of our world—and the direction we must take if global transformation is to become a reality.
