Episode Description: In his talk on Enacting Hope, the philosopher Evan Thompson reviews Gabriel Marcel’s view on Hope through his differentiation between a conditioned, and an unconditioned hope. Given our historic situation, unconditioned hope acts as an antidote to despair by requiring an inner creative process of transformation, rooted in the security of our very being. Oriented towards love, embodied in communal life, and recognized in each other, it provides a bond that unites life. ‘We hope in Earth, for all of us.’
