We must now consider the irascible passions: (1) Hope and despair; (2) Fear and daring; (3) Anger. Under first head there are eight points of inquiry:

A1 Whether hope is the same as desire or cupidity?

A2 Whether hope is in the apprehensive, or in the appetitive faculty?

A3 Whether hope is in dumb animals?
