Stull Holt is concerned specifically with historical research; modern languages and literatures are discussed by RenĂ© Wellek, and the classics and archaeological studies form the subject of Walter R. Agard’s section; the final piece, by Arthur E. Murphy, deals with philosophy in the twentieth century.
