Dread of death

18 March, 2008

 

“The primitive dread of death resides in the unconscious –
a dread that is part of the fabric of being,
that is formed early in life
before the development of precise, conceptual formulation,
a dread that is chilling, uncanny, and inchoate,
a dread that exists prior to and outside of language and image.”

Irvin Yalom, “Existential Psychotherapy”
