Hopes and Dreams


  •   I am indebted to Cheshire Calhoun for her inspiring paper, “Hope Matters,” and for giving me permission to discuss it before its publication. I am further indebted to her for reading multiple versions of this paper, and providing invaluable comments in writing and at the 2008 Pacific APA. I am also grateful to Christopher Hayes, Amy Kind, David McNaughton, and John Russell Roberts for comments on earlier drafts, to audiences at the 2008 Pacific APA and the 2008 Ethical Theory and Moral Practice Conference in Amsterdam, to the participants in the Spring 2009 value theory writing seminar at the University of Pennsylvania, and to two anonymous reviewers at this Journal.
