FRENCH: angoisse primale/primaire

What is the difference between angoisse primale and angoisse primaire, if any? I am looking for a word to describe this kind of fear that is common for most of the people, like fear of darkness, of the unknown, of strangers, of a forest, of being alone, etc. that supposedly originated when the human race was very young.

And what are the equivalents of the French terms peur (fear?) and angoisse (anguish? dread?) in English?
