CV Nancy E. Snow is a Professor of Philosophy with research interests in moral psychology and virtue ethics.  She recently published  Virtue as Social Intelligence: An Empirically Grounded Theory. New York, New York: Routledge Press, 2010. She is currently working on two books -- one on hope and one on virtue ethics and virtue epistemology -- as well as invited papers on virtue ethics.  She is editing an anthology for Oxford University Press entitled, Cultivating Virtue: Multiple Perspectives, and co-editing, with her colleague Dr. Franco V. Trivigno, an anthology for Routledge Press entitled, The Philosophy and Psychology of Virtue: An Empirical Approach to Character and Happiness.  She is the Associate Editor for Ethics and Philosophy of The Journal of Moral Education. De lezing vindt plaats in het Hoofdgebouw van de VU, in een zaal die later bekend gemaakt zal worden

Abstract
In the history of philosophy and theology down to contemporary times, hope has been regarded as a passion or as a moral or theological virtue.  I explore hope as an intellectual virtue, thereby following the lead of Roberts and Wood in developing profiles of the intellectual virtues as part of the approach that they call “regulative epistemology.”  As opposed to analytic epistemology, which attempts to develop a theory of knowledge, regulative epistemology aims to give epistemic guidance about how to formulate beliefs and understandings.  Virtue epistemology is a type of regulative epistemology that focuses on the virtues a person should have in order to be an excellent intellectual agent.  Part I develops a conception of hope, and parts II and III outline respects in which hope so construed can be considered an intellectual virtue.  Part IV concludes with a brief mention of some perils associated with hoping.
