Of Fear, in Itself

We must now consider, in the first place, fear; and, secondly, daring. With regard to fear, four things must be considered:

  1. Fear, in itself;
  2. Its object;
  3. Its cause;
  4. Its effect. Under the first head there are four points of inquiry:
  5. Whether fear is a passion of the soul?
  6. Whether fear is a special passion?
  7. Whether there is a natural fear?
  8. Of the species of fear.
