Abstract

The concept of anxiety — considered here in its non-pathological sense, i.e. normal anxiety of everyday life — refers to a whole series of manifest behaviours and subjective experiences which originate in the anticipation of a threat to the integrity of the self. This threat need not be anticipated with regard to the whole self, but may be more narrowly focussed and relate to specific aspects of the self, for example, the physical self, moral self, relational self, self-esteem, etc. Thus, the experience of anxiety can have a variety of meanings for the individual, the full range of which still remains to be identified.
