9780198747888: The Task of Hope in Kierkegaard

Scholars have largely ignored hope in Kierkegaard's thought, typically passing over it as a mere description of faith, rather than a theme in its own right. However, Mark Bernier argues that for Kierkegaard hope is one of the most valuable qualities of the religious life, and it is an essential thread connecting despair, faith, and the self.

In The Task of Hope in Kierkegaard, he reconstructs Kierkegaard's theory of hope, which involves the distinction between mundane and authentic hope, and makes three principal claims. First, while despair involves the absence of hope, a rejection of oneself, and a turn away from one's relation to God, despair is fundamentally an unwillingness to hope. This unwillingness is directed toward authentic hope, conceived of by Kierkegaard as an expectation for the possibility of the good. Second, hope is not simply an ancillary activity of the self; rather, the task of becoming a self is essentially constituted by hope. To be in despair, and therefore, to be unwilling to hope, is in fact to reject the task of becoming a self. Third, faith stands in opposition to despair precisely because it is a willingness to hope. An essential role of faith is to secure the ground for hope, and in this way faith secures the ground for the self. In short, authentic hope-what Kierkegaard calls spiritual hope-is not merely a fringe element, but is essential to Kierkegaard's project of the self.

About the Author:


Mark Benier (Ph.D., University of California, Irvine) is a lecturer at Azusa Pacific University. His research focuses primarily on Kierkegaard, Existentialism, and Philosophy of Religion, with interests
in Leibniz and the early modern period. He is currently working on an anthology of the concept and history of hope.

Review:


"Bernier offers students of Kierkegaard a valuable point of departure and spurs us on to take a second look at a woefully neglected concept in Kierkegaard s works. The ease of Bernier s
prose makes this a worthy text for undergraduate seminars on Kierkegaard, while his original contributions give the book value for graduate and professional readers."--Religious Studies Review


"[A]dmirable..."--Times Literary Supplement


"The treatment here is highly competent...and it distinguishes itself from previous work through its persistent focus on the concept of hope."--Reading Religion


"The major contribution of Bernier's work lies...in the convincing demonstration of just how important hope is for understanding the task of self-formation in Kierkegaard. Once again, however, that is not all. Faith as a willingness to hope that defeats despair and accepts the good as gift: such a formulation opens a door for us, not just unto Kierkegaard's thought, butperhapsunto the nature of hope itself."--Thomas J. Millay, Anglican Theological Review
