Random information on the term “Dread”:
Angst means fear or anxiety (anguish is its Latinate equivalent, and anxious, anxiety are of similar origin). The word angst was introduced into English from the Danish, Norwegian, and Dutch word angst and the German word Angst. It is attested since the 19th century in English translations of the works of Kierkegaard and Freud. It is used in English to describe an intense feeling of apprehension, anxiety, or inner turmoil.
In other languages, having the meaning of the Latin word pavor for “fear”, the derived words differ in meaning; for example, as in the French anxiété and peur. The word angst has existed since the 8th century, from the Proto-Indo-European root *anghu-, “restraint” from which Old High German angust developed. It is pre-cognate with the Latin angustia, “tensity, tightness” and angor, “choking, clogging”; compare to the Ancient Greek ἄγχω (ankho) “strangle”.
In Existentialist philosophy, the term angst carries a specific conceptual meaning. The use of the term was first attributed to Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard (1813–1855). In The Concept of Anxiety (also known as The Concept of Dread, depending on the translation), Kierkegaard used the word Angest (in common Danish, angst, meaning “dread” or “anxiety”) to describe a profound and deep-seated condition. Where non-human animals are guided solely by instinct, said Kierkegaard, human beings enjoy a freedom of choice that we find both appealing and terrifying. It is the anxiety of understanding of being free when considering undefined possibilities of one’s life and one’s power of choice over them. Kierkegaard’s concept of angst reappeared in the works of existentialist philosophers who followed, such as Friedrich Nietzsche, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Martin Heidegger, each of whom developed the idea further in individual ways. While Kierkegaard’s angst referred mainly to ambiguous feelings about moral freedom within a religious personal belief system, later existentialists discussed conflicts of personal principles, cultural norms, and existential despair.
Random information on the term “FEAR”:
Clinton Loomis (born February 19, 1988 in Lancaster, California), more commonly known as Fear, is an American former professional Dota 2 player and coach. With a career spanning a decade, Fear was one of the oldest Dota players in the scene. He was featured alongside Danil “Dendi” Ishutin and Benedict Lim “hyhy” Han Long in the documentary Free to Play. With Evil Geniuses, he won over a million dollars as the winners of The International 2015.
Fear’s first team was called PluG Pullers Inc., and they were picked up by CompLexity Gaming in 2006. After the compLexity Dota division was shut down in 2007, Fear reformed PluG Pullers, but left the team when he was asked to join Meet Your Makers. Fear was a member of MYM for a year, and he left the team a few weeks before the organization went bankrupt.
His next stop was Evil Geniuses, which lasted from March to December 2009 before the Dota division was disbanded. Fear then joined a star-studded Blight.int team, which changed sponsors before disbanding over salary issues. This led to a period of inactivity for Fear, as real-life commitments limited his ability to play competitively.
