The Fear of Knowledge. Epistemophilical Anguish. The fear of knowledge therefore emerges as the anxiety of losing the world that we have helped to define through reciprocal relational experiences, a world that includes us in a narrative recognized and recognizable by both ourselves and others. The process of destabilizing relations with the know, with that arrangement of objects and relations that renders us capable of moving and operating in relative security, threatens the very stability of the inner arrangement of the knowing subject. When faced with the sensation of losing the unity of the whole, the knowingsubject and known-object integration, what emerges is the need to control the parts that appear to be headed for disorder and confusion.
