What Good Will REALLY Is! A Holiday Event in NYC on Sunday, December 22

Tomorrow's Thanksgiving celebrations kick off the holiday season. It can be a joyous time, a chance to spend time with people who mean a lot to us.

What is it people are really hoping for at this time of year? When someone speaks about this as a time for good will, what do they mean by that? Aesthetic Realism explains that good will is not the mushy thing people take it to be. It is, Eli Siegel showed, "the desire to have something else stronger and more beautiful, for this desire makes us stronger and more beautiful."

If you're planning to be in the NYC area on December 22, you can learn more about the meaning of good will at a special dramatic and musical event, including holiday songs, arias and choruses that have been loved by millions, a lecture on Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," and more.
