Author of Nerve,Taylor Clark, on the next Outlook Portland.

If you want to know how human beings really think, look to the Greeks, who had a seemingly-insatiable fetish for isolating, naming, and, finally, personifying in deity form all the various facets of our existence. (And sometimes through bizarre multitasking, such as Athena being the goddess of wisdom……and handicrafts. Really.)

There was, however, one element of Earthly life so large, so powerful that it took no fewer than six beings to represent it. And thus, when Ares went to battle, he was accompanied by Phobos, who represented horror, Deimos, who was terror, and by four attendants: Trembling, Panic, Dread…and Fear.

Fear is, perhaps, the overriding emotion in our lives, and Outlook Portland’s next guest wanted to learn more about what causes fear, who can handle it, and what it really does to us.

Taylor Clark, the author of Starbucked, returns to discuss his latest book, Nerve: Poise Under Pressure, Serenity Under Stress, and the Brave New Science of Fear and Cool.

The show will also feature another “Outlook Portland Editorial Reply”, brought to you by our marquee sponsor, Things From Another World. This week’s guest editorialist: The King of the Monsters: Godzilla.

Outlook Portland, Sunday at 6:30am, only on NW32 TV…the home of Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries, and Rick Emerson.
