Abstract

The central concern of this study will be this: will the study of a specific work of literature have a statistically significant effect upon the attitudes of students toward the problems dealt with in that work? This problem grew out of a consideration of the difficulties involved in an earlier and now discarded study. A choice of weather to use Aldous Huxley’s point or his Brave new world was to be made, and point counterpoint seemed the better choice for that study; but the book chosen has to be taught to freshman English students. The immediate problem was one of whether point counterpoint could be taught successfully to these students.
