Fear as a Political Factor
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Political Science.
2017 (English)In: International Political Sociology, ISSN 1749-5679, E-ISSN 1749-5687, Vol. 11, no 1, 55-72 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In past decades, social and cultural theory as well as international relations theory and political theory have been preoccupied with the subject of fear. In this article, I return the conversation about fear as a political factor to what may be the oldest subject in the book: the connection between fear and political authority. Today, I suggest, we are in the midst of a shift in our understanding of this relationship, prompted not least by efforts to come to terms, analytically and politically, with the challenges of climate change. The article seeks to get a clearer view of this shift by identifying and analyzing three distinct stories in academic and public discourse about fear and political authority. By way of conclusion, I venture that these mutations in our ways of thinking, speaking, and feeling about political authority and fear point toward a model of political authority for post-sovereign conditions.
