The plans of the New Universities for the Humanities had little in common: indeed Warwick was distinguished by having no plan at all, only a very few general guidelines. The success of developments in the Humanities at Warwick and the other New Universities is adumbrated, and it is pointed out that this could not have been due to any prior blueprints. Rather, the open and liberal atmosphere of their foundation and the commitment to that attitude of their founding staff is claimed to be the explanation. While today the circumstances of their foundation could not be reproduced, in spite of present difficulties the distinctive and still vital spirit of the New Universities should be cherished.
