The aim of this final paper is to give you the opportunity to bring the course readings and discussions into creative conversation with your own religious / spiritual /philosophical stance. This is not simply a journal entry, but an academic exercise in which you intertwine the personal and the intellectual.
The aim of the paper: To academically and personally engage FOUR themes — one from each of the four world religions of your choice
(Please choose Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Judaism).
By “theme” I mean something specific: for example, reincarnation, four noble truths, the middle way, the 5 relationships, Te, etc.
In your discussion of each theme, be sure to provide some context — however brief. For example, where is the theme from and how does it fit into the specific world religion?
No outside research required. Please refer especially to the Huston Smith text, but you can also refer to the notes, video clips, etc. from the class.
This personal-academic engagement with four themes from four world religions should be approximately 3 1/2 – 4 pages, double-spaced, 12 pt. font. It is worth 100 pts.
Please submit the paper as an attached Word Document no later than Friday May 11, 2012 before midnight.
