Carter Phipps is the Co-Founder and Director for the Institute for Cultural Evolution. ICE is a 501c3 “integral think tank” focusing on the cultural roots of America’s challenges with a mission to help create political evolution in America.

ICE’s approach involves applying groundbreaking insights taken from Integral philosophy, developmental psychology, evolutionary theory, and the social sciences to overcome hyper-partisan polarization and bring about a more functional form of politics.

ICE’s campaigns target the issues of political polarization, evolving both the Right and the Left in American politics, radical Islamism, and climate change.

Through public talks and lectures, and invitational conclaves, we are helping NGOs, nonprofits, businesses and other organizations to be more effective by better understanding the cultural dynamics influencing (and in some cases inhibiting) their work.

“For my money, Steve McIntosh and Carter Phipps are two of the most lucid, thoughtful, practical thinkers alive on the subject of cultural evolution, and integral thinking. I’ve been studying and writing in this arena for 25 years, and these two guys, and their books, have changed the way I look at the world. The Institute for Cultural Evolution is going to be a major force in addressing and finding new solutions to the key social issues that continue to divide us.” Tony Schwartz

“I think Depolarizing the American Mind by McIntosh and Phipps is among the most insightful essays I’ve ever read about the causes of our Nation’s hyper-partisan polarization problem. It offers a new diagnosis of how we got here, and a new prescription for what to do now. McIntosh and Phipps show us how we can evolve into more constructive forms of disagreement a decade from now.”

“Applying Integral Theory and an understanding of the evolution of worldviews, Steve McIntosh and Carter Phipps have founded the Institute for Cultural Evolution to counter ideological rigidities with a more comprehensive and flexible framework that integrates polarities and points to new solutions to our most intractable problems. This is an exciting development to watch and support.” Sam Yau

Chairman of the Board, Esalen Institute
