Steve is President and Co-Founder of the nonprofit “integral political think tank,” The Institute for Cultural Evolution (“ICE”). ICE is applying insights from Integral philosophy, developmental psychology, evolutionary theory, and the social sciences to help create significant forward movement in the evolution of the American political landscape. Neither left, nor right, nor centrist, ICE focuses on problems created by America’s culture war where deep and often unrecognized forces shape the hearts and minds of the electorate.
ICE’s major publications to-date are shown on the sidebar to the right. In addition to Steve, ICE’s founders include fellow integral authors Carter Phipps, Elizabeth Debold, Michael Zimmerman, and John Mackey. For more information, including ICE’s blog and its popular “polarization test,” please visit The Institute for Cultural Evolution (www.culturalevolution.org).
Institute for Cultural Evolution co-founders Steve McIntosh and Carter Phipps present the think tank’s climate plan and polarization plan, as well as some background on the evolutionary thinking behind their approach. The video consists of a 50 minute powerpoint presentation followed by audience questions and discussion. Recorded on April 1, 2013 at The Integral Center, Boulder, Colorado.
