Aurobindo’s Model of Consciousness: A Comparative Graphic View

Below is a graphic presentation based on Aurobindo’s horizontal and vertical stage models of human consciousness, as compared with those espoused by Jean Piaget, Spiral Dynamics. Plotinus, and Vedanta (the koshas). The only parts of Aurobindo’s vertical system not represented in this graphic are the Subconscient and the Inconscient. I also took the liberty of adding the higher cognitive levels of Commons and Richards to Piaget’s cognitive stage model. For a clearer, more detailed view, press Cntrl and + to enlarge the screen.

SELF posits a model of counselling and communicative action as an instrument in order to stimulate the public sphere. The model aims at supplementing the individual’s struggle for a successful social adjustment with more aspirational inputs so as to help one take an informed and balanced attitude towards life as well as society.
