Note:This definition of integral is alternate to the mathematical type of integral.

Something that, by attempting to do its intended task, inadvertently does the opposite.
Despite popular belief, this does not include things that are broken, such as something that doesn't work or is used improperly.

Representing a stage of thinking which emerges after pluralistic post-modernist thought. Integral consciousness can also be referred to as methodological pluralism, in that unlike the disorder of postmodernism, integralism is characterized, by natural organization, or holons. Integral thought was made popular by American Philosopher Ken Wilber.

Integral philosophy is a school of philosophy.
Related to that school, is the belief that humans develop through relatively similar stages of consciousness as they go through life, one such emerging stage of consciousness is often referred to as the Integral stage, or post-post modernist stage, distinct from the post-modernist stage which preceded it.
Only after orienting ourselves within certain generalizations about the nature of existence and its unfolding. Can we began to move into an integral understanding, of ourselves and our place in the universe.

Adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.
Having integrity is not lying - in otherwords, doing what you said you would do. OPPOSITE OF INTEGRITY: Telling her you are going to call, and then NOT calling. That's the definition of a Scumbag!

Don't listen to the guy above talking about integration. Integration is NOT the reversal of differentiation. That would be the anti-derivative. Integrals and anti-derivatives are NOT the same thing. But they are connected by the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
If a function f(x) has an anti-derivative F(x), the area under the curve from a to b is equal to F(b)-F(a).

This is integration defined.
