In this interview, integral philosopher Steve McIntosh says the way to approach truth is threefold: science, philosophy, and spirituality.
He explores the purpose of evolution, including the evolutionary impulse in humans and how cultural evolution changes and progresses. He addresses the significant worldviews that have emerged in history and what is emerging now, and that while cultural progress makes the world a better place, it also brings problems. Steve also explains why post-modernists need to be more inclusive of the worldviews of modernists.
