The Principle of Hope is one of the great works of the human spirit. It is a critical history of the utopian vision and a profound exploration of the possible reality of utopia. Even as the world has rejected the doctrine on which Bloch sought to base his utopia, his work still challenges us to think more insightfully about our own visions of a better world.

The Principle of Hope is published in three volumes: Volume 1 lays the foundations of the philosophy of process and introduces the idea of the Not-Yet-Conscious―the anticipatory element that Bloch sees as central to human thought. It also contains a remarkable account of the aesthetic interpretations of utopian "wishful images" in fairy tales, popular fiction, travel, theater, dance, and the cinema. Volume 2 presents "the outlines of a better world." It examines the utopian systems that progressive thinkers have developed in the fields of medicine, painting, opera, poetry, and ultimately, philosophy. It is nothing less than an encyclopedic account of utopian thought from the Greeks to the present. Volume 3 offers a prescription for ways in which humans can reach their proper "homeland," where social justice is coupled with an openness to change and to the future.

So, there are times where you have to wonder if the lack of depth is coming from the translation, because the bulk of this text is incredible. Bloch takes the smallest of possible cultural artifacts and relates them to the realm of Hope in a way that has clearly matured since Spirit of Utopia and Heritage of Our Times. It's pathetic that the West has neglected this brilliant cultural critic because of his socialist viewpoints, but Principle of Hope is what makes him all the more relevant even decades after he passed away.

It's incredible no one takened the time to review this magnum opus of one of the most important committed thinkers of our time. Bloch's life itself well traversed almost a century,seeing himself and participating in the early innovative artistic movements,Expressionism, the plays of Brecht,Schoenberg's 12 Tone Dodecaphonic means. He also carried diatribes with the likes of Gyorgy Lukacs, as well as writers he admired Anna Siegel. Utopia is a realm that never seems to go away. For Bloch it was a way of gaining distance with the world,in fashioning a path toward it yourself. He said someplace that we all inhabit our own durational frames, and that we develop, or come to see our horizons not simultaneously as we have been taught to believe. This massive three-volume work is a mere encyclopedia tracing where mankind has found its horizon,sometimes placing it theri aritficially, as in art. Goethe Faust has a prominent place here as well as early secular religions of the world, how each shares this vision of Utopia Bloch so impassioned voice seeks. Marx is here as well, and it was Bloch who for want of a better term, introduced the warmer side of the human spirit to into Marxist discourse. Bloch, as Adorno,Horkheimer,even Lukacs, were not really political animals,nor consummate players, so they each saw the Soviet Union as some hope, less Adorno,who was skeptical of everything. The early religious leader Thomas Munzer, Luther's arch enenmy during the burgeoning Reformation and the Peasant Wars is also a point of reference for Bloch. And music makes an entrance, however Bloch really never got to know modernist repertoire, his thoughts are abssorbed with the classics, Mozart,Beethovem Bruckner and Wagner all have places in his Utopian edifice.

Ernst Bloch (1885-1977) was a professor for philosophy at the University of Leipzig from 1949-1956. But September 20, 1961, Associated Press reported: "The internationally admitted philosopher professor Ernst Bloch did not return from a visit in the Federal Republic (BRD, West-Germany) to the Soviet Zone (GDR, East-Germany)." One of his reasons: The building of the wall between the two German states August 13, 1961.

In his suit-case Bloch did not have no more possession than a crime-book of Agatha Christie. A typical nonchalant gesture of the philosopher of hope and progress. He wrote to the GDR-administration: "I am no longer determined to offer my work and myself to unworthy conditions."

His peerless magnus opus, "The Principle of Hope", he wrote in the years 1938-1947 in the "Public Library" in Manhattan at the 42nd street - after he had been driven out of Germany by the Nazis, who burned books and terrorized jews and socialists. His wife Karola earned the money, working as an architect in New York.

Back in Germany (1949) he at first helped to evolve Marxian thinking. But it did not last long, then he wrote: "Now chess must be finally played - instead of Bingo." "Nowadays one can select between dull or wrong. With a wrong shoe however no one is able to walk far. A cloudy glass also makes anything cloudy, which is poured in..." With such aphorisms Ernst Bloch very soon became a mentor in the epicenter of the 1968 student movement in Tuebingen, a famous university in West-Germany.

Bloch often tried to convince via small anecdotes, for example the description, how Stephenson, the inventor of the steam engine, managed not to lose HOPE: "In vain he followed the first boiler on wheels running behind. The steam machine more and more rapidly approached a curve. The mother of all railway engines drove straightforward and exploded at the wall of a house. Stephenson now everything had understood completely. He built a new machine, equipped with a steering-wheel, using an iron-track."

Like the art of engineering philosophy should never forget, that to proceed is an important component. This still has been the reasonable message of Bloch's philosophy - though, in the meantime, some states (i.e. hammers and sickles) have had to change their doctrines fundamental ...
