Abstract

In this article, the author discusses the study of R. J. Lister on the role of obligatory study of literature in the study of accounting. The author is critical on the application of separate liberal arts in accounting in which he argues that Lister did not consider whether accounting is a separate discipline. He also believes that though many accounting degrees benefit from inclusion of Liberal Arts, students will not benefit from its greater inclusion to develop their critical thinking.
