According to Sigmund Freud
(1856-1939) anxiety originates
when there is a state of increased
excitement which leads to
congestion and is the biological
background to the experience of
anxiety. Psychoanalysis tells us
that each state of panic grows
out of the primary trauma of birth.
This explains anxiety as a learned
reaction in the sense of a classical
conditioning. The philosopher
Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) adds
that the whole range of anxiety
reaches from the cradle to the
grave. 
 
A new view on the nature of anxiety was confrmed by the experiments done by Schachter & Singer.
Drugs increasing activity and drugs lessening activity were administered to subjects. During a period of
waiting for the experiment to begin (an experiment which never really took place) the researchers staged
accidental incidents on subjects with the aim of bringing them into a either a cheerful or an angry mood.
