These questions allow for credible outside readings to count toward your three citations of required readings. So, provided that your sources are credible, three citations from credible outside sources will count as required readings in the Week 8 Discussion.
No later than the fourth day of the academic week, please respond to this thread by writing a thorough and thoughtful essay that answers one of the following questions.:
- Compare the strengths and weaknesses of these two worldviews:
- Western, experimental, scientific
- Religious, mythical, or magical
Your Initial Post is expected to be a 300 word prose essay, with a thesis statement and 2-5 paragraphs supporting and explaining the thesis. Remember to base your response on information and analysis from the readings. Cite the information and analysis you provide. Explain what you learned in your own words, and do your best to synthesize the authors’ analyses into your own original analysis; do not rely exclusively on quotations from the readings to make your points. Please change the title of your post to something unique. Note which question you choose to answer.
