The Meeting of Two Integrative Metatheories

Journal of Critical Realism 11 (2):188-214 (2012)
Abstract
This paper examines the points of connection and divergence between critical realism/metaRealism and integral theory, suggesting ways in which they might interact and mutually enrich each other. It highlights the common ground that both metatheories share and also identifies the particular strengths and shortcomings of both, arguing that they stem, in part, from their different emphases: integral theory on individual emancipation and critical realism on social emancipation. It suggests that this different focus has led to different strengths in each that often coincide with an area that needs developing in the other, providing a promising potential for mutual enrichment
