"We often hear stories of people in terrible and seemingly intractable situations that are preyed upon by individuals offering empty promises of help. Frequently these cases are condemned as "exploiting the hope" of another. These accusations are made in a range of contexts, including human smuggling, the beauty industry, and unproven medical interventions. This concept is meant to do heavy lifting in public discourse, identifying a specific form of unethical conduct. However, it is poorly understood what is intended to be wrong by exploiting hope, the range of activities that can accurately be captured under this concept, and what should be done about it. Thus, it is an ethical concept that is ripe for extended analysis and discussion"--

What exactly is hope and how does it influence our decisions? In How We Hope, Adrienne Martin presents a novel account of hope, the motivational resources it presupposes, and its function in our practical lives. She contends that hoping for an outcome means treating certain feelings, plans, and imaginings as justified, and that hope thereby involves sophisticated reflective and conceptual capacities. Martin develops this original perspective on hope--what she calls the "incorporation analysis"--in contrast to the two dominant philosophical conceptions of hope: the orthodox definition, where hoping for an outcome is simply desiring it while thinking it possible, and agent-centered views, where hoping for an outcome is setting oneself to pursue it. In exploring how hope influences our decisions, she establishes that it is not always a positive motivational force and can render us complacent. She also examines the relationship between hope and faith, both religious and secular, and identifies a previously unnoted form of hope: normative or interpersonal hope. When we place normative hope in people, we relate to them as responsible agents and aspire for them to overcome challenges arising from situation or character. Demonstrating that hope merits rigorous philosophical investigation, both in its own right and in virtue of what it reveals about the nature of human emotion and motivation, How We Hope offers an original, sustained look at a largely neglected topic in philosophy.

Thousands of years after an American Indian tribe settled at the foot of a great spring, William Penn and the Quakers arrived in New Hope, Pennsylvania. It would be the beginning of an epic romance, as the borough has developed into one of the most beloved river towns in the world. During the Revolutionary War, General George Washington marched through the borough on four documented occasions. At the pinnacle of the war, ten thousand Continental Army troops crossed Coryell’s Ferry as they went on to win a crucial victory at the Battle of Monmouth. But it’s not just New Hope’s location on the Delaware River that has made is so important. Artists of the impressionist school produced great landscape paintings there, and classic Broadway and Hollywood stars played in front of the footlights at New Hope's famous Bucks County Playhouse. In more recent years, the borough became the first in Pennsylvania to pass a comprehensive ordinance banning discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Take a fascinating journey focusing on one of the nation’s most colorful river towns, and learn all about its diverse population, eclectic shops, and natural beauty. This is New Hope, Pennsylvania.
