Every few years, this kind of frontal assault on the value of contemporary architecture is launched, but the criticisms this time seem especially shallow and misplaced. Several months later he wrote: “It is unfortunate for you that you were educated at Princeton where there is an incarnation of doctrine and everything is looked on from that standpoint. No wonder the updates are getting slower.... Literature remains relevant and essential because it relates as it conveys and carries us beyond ourselves and our world - metaphorically and literally - so that we might experience fresh perspectives, receive challenges to our knowledge and sensibilities, reach new understandings, perhaps even attain wisdom, through such things as poetry, plays, novels, short stories, memoirs, and all the other literary forms.

It is the Voice that is final and overwhelming. Stuhlmacher’s critique of historical criticism is powerful, but his failure to offer a precise alternative by which to determine what is true in historical documents leaves the reader with very little direction for doing history.

Form criticism attempts to determine literary patterns in Scripture, isolate units of text, and trace each unit to its “origin” in oral tradition. Other forms of criticism were mixed with this emphasis on history and biography: Impressionism: appreciating the text for its beauty. In other words, what patterns exist within the text that make it a product of a larger culture? Writing a critical paper requires two steps: critical reading and critical writing.

The documentary hypothesis, which attempts to chart the origins of the Torah, is another key finding of the work of higher criticism. The video was shown at Glen Allen High School in Henrico during two assemblies for Black History Month and depicts several runners on a track, with black runners facing insurmountable obstacles while white runners are unimpeded. This mystification is applied also to whole peoples and nations. [...] "This retributive view of kamma is quite alien to canonical Buddhism, as Buddhist scholars and teachers have made clear on many occasions.” The result is a depressive acceptance of social ills, taken as they are to be endured rather than cured.

Literary criticism involves close reading of a literary work, regardless of whether you are arguing about a particular interpretation, comparing stories or poems, or using a theory to interpret literature. However, "New Historicism" continues to exercise a major influence in the humanities and in the extended conception of literary studies. "Ethnic Studies," sometimes referred to as "Minority Studies," has an obvious historical relationship with "Postcolonial Criticism" in that Euro-American imperialism and colonization in the last four centuries, whether external (empire) or internal (slavery) has been directed at recognizable ethnic groups: African and African-American, Chinese, the subaltern peoples of India, Irish, Latino, Native American, and Philipino, among others. "Ethnic Studies" concerns itself generally with art and literature produced by identifiable ethnic groups either marginalized or in a subordinate position to a dominant culture. "Postcolonial Criticism" investigates the relationships between colonizers and colonized in the period post-colonization.
