For What May I Hope?

Thinking with Kant and Kierkegaard


Gene Fendt

For What May I Hope? is a dramatic exhibition of the place of hope in Philosophy. It presents hope's centrality in Kant's philosophy and dramatizes its final breakdown. It then shows how hope plays in various characters of Kierkegaard's authorship. The text dramatizes, as well, the hopes of writing - especially philosophical and scientific writing - and plays on the hopes of readers.
