Despite its prominent place in everyday use, hope has received very little philosophical attention. This paper will attempt to remedy this by asking what hope is and why we might think it is a good thing. To do this, the discussion will consider how we use the term ‘hope’, use these ideas to explain what hope is and then apply Aristotle’s doctrine of the mean to give an account of when it might be appropriate to be hopeful.


Hope to see you there! Wine will be served, as usual.
