Jean-Paul Sartre used the term ' la nauseé' to act as the equivalent for the untranslatable German Angst.
Bold textAnguish is a term used in contemporary philosophy, often as a translation from the Dutch angst, meaning "dread". It is a paramount feature of existentialist philosophy, in which anguish is often understood as the experience of an utterly free being in a world with zero absolutes (existential despair). In the theology of Kierkegaard, it refers to a being with total free will who is in a constant state of spiritual fear that his free will leads him to fall short of the standards that God has laid for him.
Anguish is the American release name of Angustia, a 1987 Spanish produced horror film starring Zelda Rubinstein, Michael Lerner, Paul Talia, Angel Jove and Clara Pastor.
