Kickoff-event in Frankfurt

On Wednesday, 8th July 2015, we’ll present and discuss the outlines of our project in the Goethe University Frankfurt. Everybody who is interested is invited to join!

One central question of our project concerns the rationality of hope. We pursue the thesis that there is a kind of hope, “fundamental hope”, which plays a constitutive role for the practical identity of the agent. A person therefore has reason to keep up hope, because this hope is valuable for his or her practical identity. We would like to spell out this idea for individual persons, but also for groups and collectives.

A further question concerns the role of hope for intersubjective relationships. In order to determine this role, we investigate structural similarities and differences of hope and trust.

We are looking forward to discussing the beginnings of our project with colleagues and consider their criticism, questions and suggestions in the further course of our work.

Time: 8th July 2015, 15:30-17:30.

Place: Goethe University, SH (Seminarhaus) 1.102

Norbert Wollheim Platz 1
60629 Frankfurt am Main
