Millennia ago, the Greek poet Hesiod must have realized the problems of hope, since it was considered one of the evils, which had not escaped Pandora’s jar. While the problems of hope have existed since time immemorial, they become particularly evident in the Anthropocene Age. This article identifies and discusses from a psychoanalytic-political perspective the perennial and present clinical and political issues of hope as human beings face a dire future. It is this psychoanalytic-political perspective that also points to a remedy, namely radical care.

Learning Objectives: After attending the presentation, participants will be able to
– Identify the various aspects of hope.
– Explicate 3 fundamental problems of hope from a psychoanalytic perspective, given the political realities of the Anthropocene Age.
– Describe why radical care addresses the problems associated with hope.
