(Cancelled) Great Conversation: The Battle for Idealism

Someone has remarked that a cynic is often an idealist with a broken heart. In an era in which the fires of social anger, fear of The Other, intolerance in all its forms, and concern over what seems to have been lost burn out of control, the path to cynicism is smooth and all downhill. In this conversation we explore how we balance our troubling concerns with our deepest convictions about what is true, good, and beautiful so that we continue to aspire to our idealism despite the evidence.
