Being there.
Guilt and anxiety.
The writings of Irving Yalom and Rollo May are integrated into discussion and practical advice on guilt and anxiety, as these experiences are typically understood by existential-phenomenological psychologists.

Music for our Non-Corporeal Descendants
The Lesson of Anxiety
Sung by Sim-own.  Inspired by Jean Piaget’s theory on accommodation, and incorporating existential perspectives on anxiety.  But, see also Klaus Fiedler’s discussion on the emotional correlates of accommodation and assimilation in his Affective Influences on Social Information Processing, a chapter in the Handbook of Affect and Social Cognition by Joseph P. Forgas.  On the psychopathology of everyday life specifically, see the work of the same name by Sigmund Freud, and William Barrett’s book entitled Irrational Man.

Being here.
Results from a A U.S. nationwide survey on nightmares and worries.
A nationwide online survey of Amazon Mechanical Turk workers was conducted October 15th-19th, 2019.  We asked participants their age, gender, and state of residence, and then asked them to tell us about their most recent nightmare, in their own words over the course of 2-3 sentences.  We then asked them to explain—again, over 2-3 sentences of their own words—what most worries them in everyday life. For both of these questions, in turn, we asked them to rate the impact of their nightmare and worries on their everyday lives.

Phenomenologizing with a New Hammer.
On nightmares, worries, and Emmanuel Levinas.

Dr. David R. Harrington returns to discuss the application of Levinasian concepts to the most popular themes revealed in our nationwide survey on nightmares and worries.
