What Malcolm says about the whole intelligence manifesto:
Since publication of my book Future Sense in 2015, three basic questions have continued to nag at me. They underpin my work as a psychologist, writer, and teacher.
- Standing at the edge of an abyss, can Homo sapiens learn to act more intelligently as a species?
- What needs to happen to arouse the mass of people across the world to face the immediacy, scale, and seriousness of the global emergency?
- What kind of education (and/or training) will stimulate and support change, rapidly, on a global scale, among human groups and institutions?
As I emerged into the world again, these three questions struck me as too important NOT to address. They demand answers and they are central in this emerging Whole Intelligence Manifesto.
