Coherent Blended Volition is a recent concept coined by Ben Goertzel in a 2012 paper with the aim to clarify his previous Coherent Aggregated Volition idea.

The earlier CAV concept appears to the author as being easily misinterpreted, with a confusion emerging between aggregation and averaging. This misinterpretation is then clarified, as stated, through CBV, which suggests instead a “conceptual blend” – a term borrowed from Fauconnier and Tunner’s works exploring creativity (2002) - between different values and perspectives. This would allow for an harmonious and elegant incorporation of divergent views and goal sets. The major detail here is that each and every single one of the persons whose views are being blended have to agree that these blend includes enough of their own contributions.
