2016–2017 Lecture Series: HOPE AND DESPAIR

Welcome to the Boston University Institute for Philosophy & Religion!

The 2016-2017 academic year brings us a new lecture series, with a great program that we are very excited to present. This year’s topic is the second in our series on the theological virtues, and tackles the virtue of hope and its opposite, despair. We expect these lectures to challenge our understanding of what it means to hope and to enrich our understanding of how and why we sometimes despair. Please join us for our first lecture in this series, like our Facebook Page for convenient updates and notifications of upcoming lectures, and view the complete program for a list of the Fall semester’s events!
