If I was to label my own philosophy that has captured (in a good way) my life since 1989, it would be to call it a "fearlessness philosophy." Now, today, I was thinking of some differences, initially, that ought to be distinguished between fearlessness philosophy (FP) and a philosophy of fearlessness (PF).

First, I went on the internet and searched for fearlessness philosophy and that combination of terms, putting…

As much as it is so important to acknowledge the nature and role of "fear" (complex as it is do define) in human affairs (e.g., philosophy of fearism) there is an equally important inquiry and education to be had in regard to how "fear" is not the only motivating, or even most powerful motivating force in human affairs. The basic philosophical and theoretical arguments are rich and complex, beyond the scope of this blog. However, I want to point out that if you wish to understand my own…

Barbara, an artist/researcher/educator and my life-partner has just posted an interesting piece, and expresses her concern of "fear of diversity" that is growing in America and with it and Trumpism a climate of anti-intellectualism like I have not experienced before where I am living.

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.
