Institute for Cultural Evolution

The Institute for Cultural Evolution (ICE) is an "integral think tank" focusing on the cultural roots of America's challenges. Our mission is to help create political evolution in America. Toward this end we are working to overcome the problem of hyper-partisan polarization by evolving the political positions of both the Right and the Left according to their own values and strengths. We are applying groundbreaking insights from Integral philosophy and developmental psychology to help bring about cultural and political progress.
