Here’s my latest podcast with Layman Pascal wherein we discuss the idea that value itself can be understood as a form of interior energy that influences consciousness and culture. As described in chapters 5, 6 and 7 of Developmental Politics, value serves as the motivating power that attracts human interest and generates political will. Also in the podcast, at 19:50, I comment on the recent unrest surrounding the murder of George Floyd: “I think in general that progressivism is the most evolved large-scale form of culture that has yet to appear in the timeline of human history. But like all …

Ever since I cast my first vote for Jimmy Carter in 1980, I’ve identified politically as a progressive. And while I continue to support many progressive political goals, the political position advocated by my new book, Developmental Politics, is best characterized as post-progressive. This emerging post-progressive perspective is not “anti-progressive,” it seeks to better integrate progressive values with the laudable concerns of America’s mainstream culture. In my new 1,200 word article published in Areo Magazine, I discuss the goals of post-progressive politics and outline its method of “cultural intelligence.” Cultural intelligence is the ability to recognize the mutual interdependence of …

During the pandemic shutdown I’ve been more active on Twitter and Facebook than usual. On April 8 I tweeted one of my favorite quotes by Alfred North Whitehead, including a photo of him in a 1940s-style armchair, which led to a humorous comment. I then found similar “armchair” photos of other integral philosophers, which resulted in the series of quotes and photos below. Whitehead Process philosopher Alfred North Whitehead defined evolution overall as: “An increase in the capacity to experience what is intrinsically valuable.” This consciousness-centric definition of evolution remains one of my favorite ideas in all philosophy. Just goes …
