Steve reflects on the campus protests, observing the interplay between the protestors’ mixed motivations, which include both world-centric morality and ethnocentric morality.

The Developmental Politics Project’s mission is to advance the evolution of consciousness and culture in America. Our work focuses on overcoming the hyper-partisan polarization that threatens American democracy.

Steve McIntosh’s Zoom group is a monthly forum on the evolution of consciousness and culture. Steve and his guests focus on philosophy, politics, spirituality, and related topic of intellectual interest to the group. Through conversation and fellowship, we’re building a free cultural space for the exploration of integral consciousness.

DepolarizingGPT is a political AI chatbot that gives three answers to every prompt: one from a left-wing perspective, one from a right-wing perspective, and a third answer from a depolarizing or “integrating” perspective. Try it out here.

Professor Loury is a courageous thought leader who transcends left and right. In this podcast, Glenn and Steve discuss developmental politics and the work of the Institute for Cultural Evolution.

Our evolving policy platform offers “win-win-win” solutions that integrate the values of all three major American worldviews: progressive, modern, and traditional. This integrative approach, derived from stakeholder capitalism, builds agreement and increases the “size of the pie.”

Our latest recommendation is for Abortion Rights in the U.S. Although it may seem counterintuitive, the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Center may ultimately help secure a woman’s right to an abortion. By extinguishing Roe v.

During this month’s meetup, Steve Mcintosh gave the Developmental Alliance a preview of his presentation for the Whitehead and Teilhard conference at Villanova University. He discusses his paper titled: “Cultivating Noosphere Evolution in the Spirit of Teilhard and Whitehead.”

Steve’s paper will be published with the other conference papers in an academic book next year.
