Daily Wisdomisms: Dabrowski and Positive Disintegration

I came across Dabrowski and his Theory of Positive Disintegration a few years ago. So much of it made sense that I felt it needed to be shared. Enjoy!

“Human and social reality appears to be submitted to the law of positive disintegration. If progress is to be achieved, if new and valuable forms of life are to be developed, lower levels of mental functions have to be shaken and destroyed, and a sequence of processes of positive disintegration and secondary integration are necessary. Consequently, human development has to involve suffering, conflicts and inner struggle” (Dabrowski, 1970).

About Universal Shift

I am the Sonata Unusual. I coat myself with some obtuse angle too far below zero to become any warmer. I create motivation, activate schemas, moisten gardens with scents of natural honeydew. Construct this meaning, you sleepy flock. Silence your singing—despairing contortions out of tune. Shatter the brittle butterfly glass with your hideous wailing. I am born of my god’s imagination. When I die I shall meet him. For there are many things to discuss over tea…or scotch.
