    Hopeism2022In: Studia Theologica, ISSN 0039-338X, E-ISSN 1502-7791, Vol. 76, no 2, p. 172-192Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Philosophers of religion have traditionally focused their attention on belief in God and assessed such belief in terms of it having some epistemic status like“rationality” or “probability”, or indeed by determining whether or not it constitutes knowledge. In this paper, I focus my attention on the non-doxastic attitude of hope and formulate reasons for whether or not we should hope for God. In light of these reasons, I formulate hopeism as a research programme according to which we should develop concepts of God by starting with the question of what type of being would be worthy of our utmost hope. I compare this view with belief-based concepts of God, such as perfect being theism and what I call worship-worthiness theism. Arguably, the greatest benefit of choosing hopeism is that it is inclusive. Most atheists as well as agnostics and theists can endorse the view. I also suggest a number of directions in which hopeism can be developed.

    Existential Suffering and Hopeful Theodicy in Esaias Tegnér’s Spleen2023In: Studia Theologica, ISSN 0039-338X, E-ISSN 1502-7791, Vol. 77, no 1, p. 62-76Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Poetry can contribute to theological and philosophical reflection. In this paper, we concentrate our attention on Esaias Tegnér’s poignant depiction of melancholy, or what we call ‘existential suffering’ in his poem Spleen. We argue the poem can be interpreted as showing that the distinction between theoretical and existential problems of suffering is less clear-cut than often presupposed and that theorizing about the meaning of suffering can have a role to play even when people are experiencing great existential suffering and despair. Based on the speaker’s existential struggles in Spleen we also formulate the novel concept of a ‘hopeful theodicy’, a concept we think can be of use more broadly in future research on problems of suffering and theodicy
