In this talk we apply a theorem of Kuelbs' on continuously and densely embedding separable Banach spaces in Hilbert spaces to obtain a necessary and sufficient condition for a closed, proper subspace of a separable Banach space to be complemented. To motivate our approach we first show that $c_0$ is dense in $\ell_\infty$ with respect to the topology of a Hilbert space, $\mathcal{H}$, containing $\ell_\infty$. We use this fact to give an alternative proof to the well-known result, due to R. S. Phillips (1940), that $c_0$ is not complemented in $\ell_{\infty}$. We apply the idea of our proof of this result to show that if $A$ is a separable Banach space and $B$ is a closed subspace of $A$, then $B$ is complemented in $A$ if and only if $B$ is not dense in $A$ with respect to the topology of the (separable) Kuelbs Hilbert space determined by $A$

Joint work with Tepper Gill (Howard University, USA).
