Abstract:

The author outlines a unique transdisciplinary method for studying fear and fearlessness, with emphasis on a new conceptualization "World's Fearlessness Teachings" (i.e., Fearlessness Tradition) and their critical importance, across time and cultures, to better manage and teach fear management in the 21st century. Extracts from the author's new book "The World's Fearlessness Teachings: A Critical Integral Approach to Fear Management/Education for the 21st Century" (University Press of America, 2010) are included. The paper concludes that "experts" in the area of fear management/education are generally unwilling to try a transdisciplinary approach because it is more work and less pragmatic. The author admits his methodology is radical, while grounded in an evolutionary realism-idealism model, and few "experts" in fear management are interested in it, so far. The field of Education ought to lead this (r)evolutionary approach and utilize the resource of the World's Fearlessness Teachings to do so. (Contains 19 footnotes. Includes a table of contents to the author's book as an appendix.).
