Theory is widely used within the humanities and some theorists have achieved an almost-canonical status across disciplines. Working metaphors such as the "theorist's toolbox" are well known, but what - if anything - should guide the application of theory? Using historical study as our field of inquiry, we will consider the origins of contemporary critical theory and how the use of theory might aid the descriptive endeavors of academic research and publication.
