21 The thesis of Ransom's book is that, unlike religion, science is not concerned with the concrete world, but with abstractions. It defines material objectives as ends in themselves, and is unable to acknowledge the various social and material limits to such objectives. Ransom also maintains that science does not see pleasure as a necessary element in the pursuit of material objectives. It is only seen as relevant to the intervals between these pursuits. Such a definition of pleasure, he argues, separates work from play, and defines play as an activity which is only concerned with the consumption of material objects.
He wanted to define a social function for the writer which would not limit the critical aspects of literature. To this end, he called for the creation of a profession of letters within America. Not surprisingly, Tate's position was moreflexiblethan that of Ransom. It enabled him to develop interests and activities which were opposed to industrial capitalism, but could exist without the envisaged restoration of the traditional society. It is Warren's career though which has endured longest and developed most significantly since his involvement with Agrarianism.
1 The second stage covers the period from 1936-1941 when Ransom was involved in the arguments over the study of literature in the universities. Finally, in the period after 1941, he began to severely limit the range of his criticism. Consequently, Ransom's New Critical positions were not developed after his involvement in Agrarianism, but were clarified during his engagement in the movement. During this period, he was concerned with the relationship of literature to both traditional and modern societies, and he sought to distinguish the modes of cognition offered by literature from those associated with scientific positivism.
