This essay deals with the question which kind of fear it is that terror plays with, or which kind of fear terror tries to generate. First of all, the classically philosophical distinction of "Angst" and "Furcht" in Heidegger and Kierkegaard is surveyed in order to, then, in distinction from these forms of fear and following Hobbes, identify the specifically political form of fear, namely that of terror. In the foreground of this identification stand the residues of political theology which nourish political terror.
