  • Anxiety is not fear, being afraid of this or that definite object, but the uncanny feeling of being afraid of nothing at all. It is precisely Nothingness that makes itself present and felt as the object of our dread.
    William Barrett (b. 1913), U.S. philosopher, editor. Irrational Man: A Study in Existential Philosophy, ch. 9, Doubleday (1958).
