Show Notes

Integral philosopher Steve McIntosh shares new ideas for healing America’s polarized politics and culture. Steve explores the “shared agreements” that form the basic units of culture and considers how virtue can become a source of common ground between opposing worldviews. He expands upon these ideas in his book Developmental Politics—How America Can Grow Into a Better Version of Itself and through his work at The Institute for Cultural Evolution, which addresses hyper-partisan polarization in the U.S.
