Gender & Sex Wars: A Fearanalysis & Solution

Introduction

This long blog post involves questioning how my own work (e.g., fearanalysis) can contribute as a 'corrective' to the Gender and Sex Wars going on around the planet, particularly in the Western (post)modern world, and especially since the 19th century arising of the Women's Movement through to the waves of feminisms. I will rely heavily in this blog on my daughter's contribution to this topic, as she (Vanessa D. Fisher) has become a bit of an expert on…

Advances in the Psychopathology of "Fear"

Introduction: Postmodern Concerns for Feariatry

It has long been my interest to study the large field of "pathology" from a systems perspective. That means, there are ways to identify "pathologies" within systems across the spectrum of complexity of evolution and development. In this sense, I have always been interested in a meta-theory of pathology.

But for now, in this blog I want to keep this short and somewhat uncomplicated with some basic ideas about…

Any of you who have followed my work know that I am always looking for re-framing of the nature and role of Fear in history (histories). One of my favorite quotes in this regard, is one written by a political history scholar, Corey Robin (2004) [1]. I am always looking to shift focus on "fear" and put critical analysis on how we create knowledge about Fear. One of the main reasons for this shift is to try to get the 'talk about fear' into the public sphere and not so restricted, as it is, in…

In Search of Fearlessness (ISOF) Project-archives

As I am finally closing down my first website ever (www.feareducation.com), I thought I ought to at least pull some of the old material from there and store it on the FM ning for research and interest, if not historical preservation. So, here it is, the first bits anyways, unedited. It's interesting for me to see where I was thinking back in 2003, the year I finished my doctoral  studies, when I put up most all the material there. ISOF ARCHIVES c. 2003   Hello... it’s been four years or so…

Envisioning a ‘Health Turn’: My Last Stage of Work from Age 65-80 -R. Michael Fisher In spring (April 18), 2017, I will turn 65 yrs old, and begin a new journey back in Canada after 9 years living in the USA.

Just found this wonderful quote that supports so much of what I have been arguing for decades. At the same time, I wouldn't only reduce "fear" to an emotion.
