最後，以始於盼望的責任倫理學來解讀莫特曼的倫理學，本文探索此解讀的優越性， 並對二十世紀的基督教責任倫理學有所貢獻。而莫特曼盼望倫理學的責任是可以因應盼望危機（crisis of hope）的問題，就是當危機論述不再具有任何盼望的時候，莫特曼的倫理學可以因應此危機的問題。
The present work is a study of the relationships between hope, responsibility, and ethics in Jürgen Moltmann’s major works. Before the publication of his Ethics of Hope, scholarly consensus either understood Moltmann’s ethics as a political theology that provides a framework for ethics, or there actually is no adequate explanatory framework for Moltmann’s ethics. Yet these earlier studies all fail to account for the significant emphasis Moltmann places on the discourse of responsibility within his major works, especially as he explores the ideas and works of God in the midst of crises in ecology, humanity, and the scientific-technological era. In Ethics of Hope, Moltmann signals a possible change in his ethical theory, which the present study argues must consist of more factors than liberation praxis alone.
This thesis seeks to read Jürgen Moltmann’s Ethics of Hope as responsibility ethics that is out of hope (deriving from hope), which is to say that Moltmann’s ethics exhibit the characteristics of responsibility ethics. Why is there a need to use both the concepts of hope and of responsibility to account for Moltmann’s ethics of hope? Are the concepts of hope and of responsibility compatible? Why not just use the concept of responsibility within his ethics of hope to explain the relationship between hope, responsibility, and ethics in Moltmann’s major works? These questions are addressed in this study.
After clarifying what the characteristics of responsibility ethics are in Christian theology, this work surveys Moltmann’s discourses on responsibility in his major works in three successive periods: that of “Trilogy,” “Messianic Theology,” and “21st Century.” A survey of his discourse of responsibility in Ethics of Hope is explored separately. The results of this survey suggest that Moltmann’s Ethics of Hope indeed displays the characteristics of responsibility ethics deriving from hope. This thesis also explains that the discourse of responsibility deriving from hope in Moltmann’s ethics must be understood within his comprehensive theological framework, which includes trinitarian faith, the kingdom of God, messianic Christology, pneumatology, time, space, and the framework of eschatology.
Having understood Moltmann’s ethics as responsibility ethics deriving from hope, the study closes by explaining the advantages of such a reading by briefly exploring the contributions that may be made to responsibility ethics in Christian theology, and by explaining how the ethics of Moltmann may cope with problems generated by a crisis of hope.
