What is hope?

Theology professor Dr. Barbara Sain will offer the New Frontiers in Theological Research lecture on theological insights into human resilience.

Date & Time:

Thursday, March 8, 2018
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM


McNeely Hall Room 100

Is hope an emotion, a virtue, or choice? Is it natural or supernatural? Is it best understood by theologians, social scientists or counselors? In this lecture, Barbara Sain will describe how hope has been defined differently by various historical and contemporary schools of thought and how these contrasting ideas of hope reveal different visions of what it means to be human. The lecture will offer ways of integrating disparate ideas of hope and strategies for overcoming hopelessness into a synthetic vision.
