Example text

If one thinks of parenting and staying healthy, or regaining one’s health, as precarious processes, then they become something within which hope has a place, even if one is fortunate at present. However, hopes for particular objectives always have a point of origin in response to an agent’s circumstances. With regard to health, one hopes about it when one fears for it. Health is very much ‘taken-for-granted’ unless and until there is an awareness of one’s vulnerability due to age, lifestyle or some other precipitating cause.

We speak of ‘bursting with joy’ and ‘cowering in fear’. There is no mystery here regarding the expansiveness of the one feeling and the contracting of the other feeling in relation to pleasure and pain, or desire and aversion. There are also typical behaviours characteristic of occurrent emotions, though a manifestation of a characteristic behaviour need not be thought of as a necessary feature of an emotion since the behaviour displayed in any given instance of occurrent emotion will be context dependent.

When one is in despair, the despair is ineliminably one’s own, even though despairing is also about someone or something else. One cannot be in despair without despairing of someone or something (however indistinct the something may be), but one can despair of other persons or states of affairs, without being in despair of oneself, even in serious cases. Hope and despair are not states or conditions which simply occur. Human beings do not just happen to hope or despair in like manner to breathing or digesting food.
