Example text

It is due to one’s perception of, and beliefs about, a given object that one may respond by despairing of it. Remember the OED definition, that to despair is to lose or give up hope, or to be without hope. Let us first take the case of despairing of someone. To despair of someone is essentially to lose hope in them in some respect. A parent, for example, may despair of a child mending his ways if the child continues to bully classmates. Also, a teacher may despair of students handing in assignments on time.

Where action is not possible on one’s own behalf, the fulfilment of one’s hope continues to be anticipated. It should be noted that in experience the placing of one’s hope in a locus of effective agency is always accompanied by an objective of hope. Also, I have claimed that hope primarily concerns a future conceived of as good, that uncertainty is a component of hope, and that (most importantly) hope should be associated with anticipation and dissociated from expectation. It has been important to begin an investigation of hope and despair with familiar everyday examples and situations because it is through the experience and understanding of the phenomena in these contexts that hope and despair are grasped and comprehended to some extent in cases that are less common, or in cases that may be considered marginal in some respect.

Though there is little for an agent to do in worldorchestrated hope, it may be expressed in a look, a gesture, perseverance or silence. 44 It is through its constitutive desire and its anticipatoriness that hope is motivating. Hope’s anticipatoriness is emphasised precisely where no direct action on the part of the hoper is possible in particular circumstances, that is, in cases of other-orchestrated hope and worldorchestrated hope. 45 Hope is intangible but not Phenomena in the Neighbourhood of Hope 43 necessarily invisible.
