FearPublic Event: panel discussion
CPVA and Institute of Psychoanalysis

“He who fears he shall suffer, already suffers what he fears”, Montaigne told us.

But what do we fear, and what is there to fear? Is fear the same as anxiety? Can fear be overcome – or should it?  Can it be useful or healthy? How may it be used or abused?

Join us for an interdisciplinary conversation drawing on art, philosophy and psychoanalysis to explore these questions and their bearing on our world today.

Chair: Alla Rubitel, psychoanalyst with the British Psychoanalytical Society, Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Imperial College London.

Speakers: Caterina Albano (curator and a Reader at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London);

Sacha Golob (Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at King’s College London and Director of the CPVA);

William Badenhorst (psychoanalyst with the British Psychoanalytical Society and Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Imperial College London).
