Third Factor is creating a magazine for catalysts and creatives

We're building a new magazine that will offer thought-provoking content for intense divergent thinkers as they strive to live up to their ideals—and to leave their mark on the world while they're at it.

Third Factor takes as its foundation Kazimierz Dabrowski's Theory of Positive Disintegration (TPD).  We believe Dabrowski's work is a theory for our time.  "Positive maladjustment" is a phrase that resonates!  Just think about it: we face an epidemic of depression, anxiety, and general alienation, and we’re simultaneously witnessing springs of hope and desire for change in the form of nascent social movements—political, spiritual, and humanistic. By providing accessible, engaging, and sharable content anchored in TPD, Third Factor will contribute to these transformative trends.  We aim to help our readers reintegrate at a higher internal level so that they can, in turn, help raise the level of our society.

Your donation will enable us reach to these people, most directly and immediately by funding social media campaigns, and eventually, by properly paying our contributors, as you can see in our milestone goals at left.  (Our first few issues will rely largely on articles donated by others who share our goal of getting positive disintegration into the mainstream.)  Your funds will also cover our web hosting tools and maybe even compensate editor-in-chief Jessie Mannisto (herself a freelance writer who is spending time she could be using to write paying articles on this project instead) and executive editor Chris Wells (who is completing her PhD and has a day job with the Gifted Development Center).  There's more about us at TF.org if you're curious, and you can meet us in person at the Dabrowski Congress in Chicago this summer, where we are both presenting.

As a patron, you'll also be able to participate in patron-only discussion on the Community tab above.  This is your opportunity to influence the direction of Third Factor as we get it up and running!

Thank you for landing on this page and even considering supporting Third Factor.
We know that we don't have much to show yet, and we're determined to live up to the leap of faith of all of you early investors. We encourage you to get in touch with us if you have questions, a vision to share, or would like to contribute in other ways.

Thank you again! We invite you to visit thirdfactor.org and sign up for our mailing list to keep up with our progress.



Goals
$54 of $100 per month
When we reach $100/month, we'll launch a major social media campaign that will plant the notion of positive disintegration into the Facebook feeds of positively maladjusted potential human catalysts around the world.
