Tom Atlee

Tom Atlee is founder of The Co-Intelligence Institute He coined the term co-intelligence, which he usually defines as meaning what intelligence looks like when we take seriously the wholeness, co-creativity and interconnectedness of life. Collective intelligence is only one manifestation of co-intelligence. Others include multi-modal intelligence, collaborativeI intelligence, wisdom, resonant intelligence and universal intelligence.

While he loves to philosophize about all the nuances and manifestations of wholeness, his central calling is to weave a holistic vision, theory and practice of democracy based on new understandings of living systems and deliberative democracy (see "A Call to Move Beyond Public Opinion to Public Judgment" ).

But he also likes to promote all resources for building a wiser democracy on
