Science must begin with myths, and with the criticism of myths.'

'Arts research needs to change direction, to look outwards, and investigate the audience not the texts. It needs to link up with sociology and psychology and public health, and create a body of knowledge about what the arts actually do to people. Until that happens, we cannot even pretend that we are taking the arts seriously.'
John Carey, What Good Are the Arts? (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2006), 167.
