The best approach to literature
is a combination of a critical and
historical study of the work, Basil
Willey said in his lecture on "Lit-
erature and Society" which was
sponsored by the English Depart-,
Willey explained that the use
of the historical approach alone
in the study of literature tends toI
become an end in itself leading
to the forgetting the original work,
while the pure critical study of a
work of art may fall into absurdi-
"The critic," Willey stated,

Boulding said that all sciences
