Sean Esbjörn-Hargens Ph.D.

Sean Esbjörn-Hargens Ph.D. has spent his life developing “metaintegral” approaches to the fields of ecology and animal consciousness, mixed-methods research, integral psychology, philosophy of science, integral education, and new post-capitalist models of measuring social impact.

As a result, Sean is a global leader in the application of integrative thinking to leader development and organizational design. For the last decade he has worked with a variety of mainstream and progressive mission-driven companies. He is the founder of MetaIntegral, which focuses on measuring four types of social impact through a multicapital value accounting framework.

Sean combines a strong academic background in the philosophy of science and integrative metatheories with an open-hearted exploration of the mystery and multi-layered nature of reality. In 2018, he founded Exo Studies Institute, through which he is joining others in pioneering the field of Exo Studies. He has had his fair share of first-person “exo” experiences, which makes this exploration personally salient and meaningful. For more information on Exo Studies, please visit www.exostudies.org. In May 2020, he also launched with Tom Curren the public service website www.whatsupwithufos.com.

Sean’s most recent books are two co-edited volumes: [amazon link=”0415820472″ title=”Metatheory for the Twenty-first Century: Critical Realism and Integral Theory in Dialogue” /] (2016, Routledge) and [amazon link=”B07ZZGPV8L” title=”Dancing with Sophia: Integral Philosophy on the Verge” /] (2019, SUNY Press). He is currently finishing another co-edited volume on integrative metatheory and his first monograph on Exo Studies.
