Global Integral Competence

To promote cosmopolitan communication as simply another form of intercultural competence is not sufficient because this concept traditionally considers just a small, predominantly cognitive subset of the whole spectrum of human life, social development, and international exchange. We must instead develop a new level of competence that covers all dimensions of human communication: intra-, inter- and transpersonal communication. Only then will we have communication that deserves to be called “cosmopolitan.” The three dimensions of communication just described – intra-, inter- and transpersonal communication – can be redefined and described based upon the integral map.
