A study of “literature in history” (Bernal, 1965) reveals that literature is a branch of knowledge involving the systematized observation of experiment with phenomena. It is a systematic & formulated knowledge particularly of a specified type or on a specified subject. It is the pursuit embodied with principles. The natural literatures are those that cover the study of physical world, where as social literature in common is that which covers areas that are not covered under natural literatures. The Social Literatures are the fields which explore the aspects of human society in which people live is very limited when compared to the material world or plants and animals. The literatures of the society are, as a group, need justification to bring them under the head literature, since it is difficult to experiment the phenomena observed as in case of natural literatures. The social literatures deal with the springs of human social action. They have a more immediate relation with history than have the natural literatures. It is because of this reason the Social Literatures have got a place in any comprehensive attempt to relate the development of literatures in general to that of society. The social literature may be grouped into two categories, the descriptive and the analytical. (Bernal, 1969) Economics, the Literature of law, Political literature, Education, Psychology and Philosophy come under this category.
