Dear Rick:

 

Don't you think the agenda of a theory then is to be "a predictive expression of an observed pattern?"

 

Does every agenda have to be political?

Traditionally a theory is simply a predictive expression of an observed pattern.  I think theories can become agendas when their observed pattern has been conditioned by faith and/or ideology.
 
To the extent that literary theories are conditioned by faith and/or ideology they then are agendas.
