Abstract/Summary

This dissertation is a critical appraisal of Cardinal Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan philosophy of hope, specifically his idea of hope as a road. For the Cardinal, the Road of Hope ties the act of hoping to our responsibility to others who are reflections of God goodness. This is compared to Gabriel Marcel's view that hope is our desire to be freed from existential despair. Finally, this dissertation argues that the Cardinal's insights about hope lead to an interesting theory of ethics grounded on God's divine will. This theory is from an Asian Catholic perspective.
