Summary "If anxiety could be controlled by biological or social means, fundamental alteration in the organization of our civilization would ensue and the probability of individual happiness would be greatly enhanced. Yet, although it is widely recognized that anxiety is the most pervasive psychological phenomenon of our time and that it is the chief symptom in the neuroses and in the functional psychoses, there has been little or no agreement on its definition, and very little, if any, progress in its measurement. The present volume cannot attempt to cover all the types of individual and group anxieties, since it is not possible to describe all the manifestations of anxiety as they occur today. It is hoped that the contributions in this volume will focus attention on the great importance of anxiety in our culture and on its importance as a cause or symptom in most emotional disorders. Even though our knowledge is incomplete, the present symposium may serve to guide current investigations as well as to provide orientation for further research"--Foreword.
