Looking at the Humanities from the Outside
Description:
Luria presented this speech on the social role of the university at a meeting of the New England College English Association. Much of it revisits topics first discussed two years earlier in an article he cowrote with Zella, entitled "The Role of the University: Ivory Tower, Service Station, or Frontier Post?" Here, he advocated fostering connectivity between one's scholarship and social activities and addressed the nature and purpose of the humanities, which he saw as the study of moralism. While doing so, he explored how two men he admired, his high school literature teacher and American historian Henry Steele Commager, were representative of this ideal.
