In Annika Schlitte & Thomas Hünefeldt (eds.), Situatedness and Place: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on the Spatio-Temporal Contingency of Human Life. Springer Verlag. pp. 187-201 (2018)

Anxiety is sometimes thought of as either a state of mind, lacking a thick spatial depth, or otherwise conceived as something that individuals undergo alone. Such presuppositions are evident both conceptually and clinically. In this paper, I present a contrasting account of anxiety as being a situated affect. I develop this claim by pursuing a phenomenological analysis of agoraphobia. Far from a disembodied, displaced, and solitary state of mind, agoraphobic is revealed as being thickly mediated by bodily, spatial, and intersubjective dimensions.
