Do We Really Want A Fearless Society? Technical Paper No. 40
Fisher, R. Michael
Online Submission
This paper summarizes the literature across disciplines and cultures that examines the possibility of a "fearless society." The author presents various theories and critical methodologies that critique this literature and yet support its inherent impulse of the Fearlessness Principle. The author suggests, despite the problems of interpretation of a "fearless society," the concept is essential to a future unifying vision for humanity, sanity and sustainability in the 21st century. This paper serves to develop a critical literacy of fear and fearlessness knowledge (i.e., fear management/education), as part of a 25 yr. long project, initiated by the author. (Contains 1 figure and 26 footnotes.) [This paper was published by the In Search of Fearlessness Research Institute.]
