Fear

Renzo Carli, Rosa Maria Paniccia

Abstract


Fear is an emotion common to all living beings, an emotion that we all know. It is also a difficult emotion to describe and define.
This paper proposes a psychoanalytical model of interpretation of fear. The cognitivist approach which is incline to confuse the emotional and behavioral components discussing fear, is critically analyzed. The contributions of historians and sociology are more useful to understand this complex emotion.

Keywords


fear; psychoanalysis; safety; decision-making strategies; power.
