This short writing assignment will involve summarizing the key argument of Freud and then critically thinking through his argument. It has three parts.
First, present how Freud defines religion. In other words, what does he say has been the historical purpose and role of religion in our world?
Second, find and explain one part of Freud’s argument that you agree with or that makes sense based on your experience or understanding of religion. Be specific about why you find this argument compelling.
Third, find another part of Freud’s argument that you disagree with or that does not make sense based on your experience or understanding of religion. Be specific and detailed about why this argument is not compelling.
To help with the second and third requirements for the assignment, students could assess some of the following questions: Does what Freud claim religion is based on accurate? Is religion void of the things he claims it is? Is religion inherently separate from science and logic and reason? Do you agree with the 3 wishes of religion according to Freud?
This short writing assignment should be two full pages (approx. 500 words) (double spaced, 12 font, Times New Roman). You are to only use course material to aid in writing this assignment: do not google or use outside sources. You are required to use two direct quotes from the article as part of your paper, and these quotes must be properly cited within the paper (ex: Freud, p. 2). .
