- ItemOpen AccessThe Love and Fear Problem: A Response to Michael Bassey Eneyo(In Search of Fearlessness Research Institute, 2019-09-27) Fisher, R. MichaelThe purpose of this article is to engage the critiques of Michael Bassey Eneyo's views of the philosophy of fearism (a la Desh Subba and R. Michael Fisher). Eneyo is invited to respond to this and Fisher will respond to it. All others who wish to respond to this exchange between Fisher and Eneyo are welcome to send in their contributions of which are potentially publishable in future issues of the International Journal of Fear Studies. Fisher makes the case that Eneyo has not fully owned his own disciplinarity in shaping his work as a philosopher of fear, and his own Christianity privileging of a faith in love; and thus, when he compares and contrasts his claims with Fisher (and somewhat with Subba's philosophy of fearism) this leads to inevitable tensions and clashes. Fisher offers several creative and productive routes for ways of improving how to work with his own views, with fearism, and those of others, especially the new breed of serious and respectable philosophers of fear, like Eneyo. The ultimate goal is to improve awareness in the 'fear territory' (a la Eneyo) and its embedded philosophical, theoretical and practical applications to fear management/education.
- ItemOpen AccessNew Fear Vocabulary(In Search of Fearlessness Research Institute, 2019-09-27) Fisher, R. MichaelWhat is fear?' This common question for most everyone who is interested in fear, usually starts the conversation of meaning by searching for a definition. Typically, these days especially, the reductionism of such a definition of fear is usually to say it is an emotion or feeling, then to claim it is found in the amygdala of the brain, and further the scientific approach wants to capture and control and delimit what fear is and what fear isn’t. Such a long traditional and even current approach has always seemed to me to be far too restrictive and distortive of what is going on when humans talk about fear, imagine fear and attempt to manage fear. I and others herein, especially from the field of fearism (i.e., philosophy of fearism), have not been content with the traditional reductionistic approaches to the topic of fear. We have asked larger questions, beyond merely the scientific way of framing the problem of fear, and have found we are better off to be creative and expansive, as well as include the scientific and retractive, and to re-imagine critically the very way humans perceive, conceive and reproduce knowledge-power about fear. 'What is fear knowledge?' has been a much more important question in my own research. A new vocabulary is required to tap-in to that exploration.
