Book: Angst: Origins of Anxiety and Depression


Why do human beings have anxiety, why are there so many different kinds of it, and what is to be done? The book presents the author’s comprehensive theory on the evolutionary origins of human anxiety, how anxiety can be made better or worse by modern civilization, and the best current ways of treating it. The central thesis is that most if not all human anxiety is social anxiety of one form or another and that anxiety, at least in its milder forms, is how evolution got us all working together in the first place.
