Steve McIntosh Interviewed by Roger Walsh and John Dupuy for the Deep Transformations Podcast

Steve McIntosh was on the new podcast: Deep Transformation: Self-Society-Spirit. His 2-part conversation with hosts Dr. Roger Walsh (renowned thought leader in the fields of spirituality and integral theory) and John Dupuy (author of Integral Recovery) outlines an extraordinary framework to make sense of our political conflicts—extraordinary in that it points to ways through and out of our persistent polarity consciousness. Steve convincingly argues our opportunity is right now: to create a synthesis, a cooperative agreement space, that transcends and includes thesis and antithesis, left and right, individual and community. Steve’s is a passionate and prophetic voice; there is hope for politics. With vertical development we can recover a common sense of truth, a common sense of goodness—transcendent ideals could become social norms. Steve ends with an invitation to listeners to investigate this new concept of cultural intelligence and the implications of the new truth: consciousness and culture co-evolve.

Carter Phipps Talks With Steve McIntosh About the Launch of the Post-Progressive Post on the Thinking Ahead Podcast

In the latest Thinking Ahead podcast, Carter Phipps and Steve McIntosh discuss the launch of the new Post-Progressive Post and how this site is designed to bring a fresh, new perspective to politics—one that is neither left, right, nor centrist, but instead attempts to synthesize the best of all three of these political positions by integrating the cultural values from each of America’s three major worldviews: Progressivism, Modernism, and Traditionalism. The launch of the site made for a perfect opportunity for Carter to have Steve back on the podcast for a deeper dive into what a post-progressive approach to politics and culture might look like.

How To Overcome Political Polarization In 5 Minutes

Over the past few decades a promising theoretical perspective has arisen that sheds new light on the forces that cause political polarization.

A New Politics of Culture

In this episode of The Daily Evolver, integral philosopher Steve McIntosh and Jeff Salzman discuss Steve’s new book: Developmental Politics—How America Can Grow Into a Better Version of Itself. Steve employs integral political philosophy to help overcome America’s hyperpolarized cultural condition.

Developmental Politics provides the fresh thinking we need to transcend America’s contemporary political impasse.
