Professor S. C. Pepper gave the first in a series of three lectures on the general subject of the "Basis of Criticism in Arts" yesterday at Emerson Hall. Pepper is visiting Harvard to give these lectures which are sponsored by the Philosophy Department.
Yesterday, Pepper's lecture was entitled "An Empirical Method of Criticism" in which he divided criticism into three general sub-divisions. In his next two lectures, which will be given on Thursday, August 24, and Thursday, August 31, he will deal with "Hendonic Philosophy" and "Contextualistic Philosophy" respectively. These lectures are to be given in Emerson Hall, Room A and will commence at 4 o'clock.
