Sample text

Such hopes as these are highly determinate hopes. But hopes may, and often do, have a less determinate character, like my hope to write another book. Though the idea of the book is determinate, my idea of what the book will contain and how it will turn out is much less so. Determinate hopes with longer term objectives can be seen to modify a pattern which emerges in an individual’s conduct. 2), this hope will regulate and coordinate diverse actions over a considerable period of time as the fulfilment of the hope is approximated.

Under these circumstances, my friend may be in despair while I despair of her attaining that for which she had previously hoped. Although my friend is the one who will carry a pregnancy to term (if she does), so that she has this capacity, or not, when I despair of her doing so, I am despairing of her (prior) objective of hope being fulfilled, rather than despairing of my friend herself. Recall that when I placed my hope in my daughter, with regard to her driving test, then I hoped that she would succeed, but my hope that she would do so was placed in her.

The very kernel of being in despair is that one has a strong hope that one comes to believe will not be fulfilled. Despair extinguishes hope but it does not extinguish desire. The relationship between hope, desire and despair is an asymmetrical one. Despairing at the death of a loved one, one may not hope to enjoy their company in life any more, but one may continue to desire it, keenly. Whether it is in the sphere of human relationships, the world of work, or some other sphere, it is only the persistence of desire after the point of despairing of one’s hope that binds one in despair, however that despair may show itself.
