The Sydney Morning Herald on irrational ordering of fears.
As phenomenologist philosophers such as Edmund Husserl​ and Martin Heidegger​ pointed out in the last century, we have an attitude or intention towards everything that confronts us in our world. Telling me I should fear the horror of falling out of the sky in a bombed Airbus A380 less than I fear driving to work, because the latter is statistically more of a threat, is like telling me I should cease to be a human being and become an abacus.
