Heidegger's Angst and Apocalyptic Anxiety

Metalepsis 1 (1):120-122 (2021)
  Copy   BIBTEX


In this article I distinguish between the existential anxiety evoked by a confrontation with human finitude and what I call Apocalyptic anxiety signaling the end of human civilization itself. The end of civilization would terminate the historical process that gives meaning to individual existence. Apocalyptic anxiety announces the collapse of all meaningfulness, a possibility so horrifying that it commonly leads to evasion of its source.
