President of Club of Budapest, Hungarian philosopher of science, systems and integral theorist, the founder of systems philosophy & developer of the “Akasha paradigm” – the new conception of cosmos, life and consciousness emerging at the forefront of the contemporary sciences.
He is recipient of the highest degree in philosophy and human sciences from the Sorbonne, the University of Paris, as well as of the coveted Artist Diploma of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Budapest. Additional prizes and awards include four honorary doctorates.
Twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize (2004, 2005), he got Goi Peace prize (2001). He has authored more than 70 books, which have been translated into twenty languages, and has published in excess of four hundred articles and research papers, including six volumes of piano recordings.
They said about Laszlo and the Akasha Paradigm
Science has outgrown its dominant paradigm. We need a new paradigm to understand the world that emerges at the cutting edge of the sciences. Laszlo’s Akasha paradigm fullfils this requirement. This is a revolutionary accomplishment of enormous scope and indisputable relevance. We need to take account of it, and follow it up with sustained research.
Physician and International Thought Leader
Understanding Laszlo’s work on the Akasha paradigm gives insight into platonic values like truth, goodness, beauty, harmony, and ambition. These give rise to spontaneous and not imposed morality, coming from an experience of our higher self. They give scientific insight into the most fundamental nature of the universe.
Philosopher, Writer, and Founder of the Integral Institute
Laszlo lists over a dozen inadequacies in present-day sciences that absolutely scream out for a new paradigm that is holistic, connective, holographic, supraluminal, nonlocal, and transuniversal (surviving multiverse to multiverse events). This is no New Age loopy speculations, but thoughtful, careful, fully outlined forays into the most respected fields of science available, at their very leading edges.
Author, Founder of the Darwin Project
Rooted in a vast understanding of the heady dynamics of advanced physics, the Akasha paradigm weds the best of religion and the best of science into a powerful expression of a new partnership between progressive science and progressive religion to beat back the forces that are trying to drive us backward in evolution. Laszlo’s grounding for the kind of mind set we need to gain a better future has been examined and blessed by more leading scientists than any other I know of.
Sociologist, Writer and Cofounder of WorldShift International
The Akasha paradigm allows for the existence of materiality while simultaneously embracing the unification of all known phenomena – it is a unity paradigm at heart, and as such it is life sustaining in its implications for humankind.
The Akasha paradigm as set forth by Ervin Laszlo tells us that life exists within a pattern that is coherent beyond our wildest dreams. Living systems seek harmony throughout their evolutionary journey. This insight uplifts our spirit and imbues our life with new meaning.
Author, Lecturer, and Educator
As Laszlo observes, nonlocality is in fact a basic feature of the universe. He postulates Akasha as the hidden dimension of the universe, one that in-forms everything in the manifest physical world, but which is also an element of consciousness as experienced from the inside…This is a refreshing prospect consistent with emerging findings in physics, biology, psychology and parapsychology. We should cast off the shackles of scientific materialism while remaining rigorous in our approach to explaining the full range of human experiences – not only normal and abnormal, but also exceptional capacities. What we currently call the paranormal or supernormal should in fact be regarded as normal within this wider Akashic framework.
Anthropologist and Humanistic Psychologist
And in his remarkable update of Bruno, Copernicus, Galileo, Darwin, Einstein and others, Ervin Laszlo, heeding Plato’s warning that even the best-designed account of the nature of reality is but as likely story, has now a good reason to tell us that the Akasha paradigm is the likeliest story we can tell today.
