"S 4 N tells its own story in numerous editorials. It is born of the idea that controversy is in an important way a 'constituent of the arts.' The result of such policy is brilliant critical tension, which leads finally to the dissolution of the 'S N 4 Society.' Norman Fitts's clearest statement of policy is 'That out of a comparison of opposed viewpoint(with attendant attacks and counter attacks,and with subsequent experimentation's and reactive critiques) comes aesthetic progress." [Hoffman, Allen, Ulrich, The Little Magazine, A History and Bibliography.].
