One of the most influential theories of the evolution of culture is Ken Wilber’s ‘Integral Theory’, based on the idea of spiral dynamics (that cultures and people have specific levels of development that they go through as they grow and evolve).

Jeff Salzman is the host of the Daily Evolver podcast about integral theory. In this discussion with David Fuller and Alexander Beiner of Rebel Wisdom, they explore how Jordan Peterson’s thought relates to integral – what are his insights and blind spots.
