Your goal in this assignment is not to summarize the chapters (only 2 and 3)—rather, reflect on them and the discussion we had about them.  Your essay should substantially address and cite ideas/material from these two chapters, as well as at least one point that came up in the class discussion.  You may also write about what did not come up in discussion.  You will need to organize your thoughts into a coherent essay with an introductory paragraph that lays out your main idea
Here are some questions you can use to help you get into “reflecting” mode.  These aren’t questions you must answer—just possible prompts.
–how do these chapters relate to each other?  To other readings we have had so far?
–what sources are the authors using to make their arguments?  Could these sources be used in other ways?
–what larger theoretical point do you see emerging from these readings, beyond their specifics?
–what questions do the readings/discussion leave you with?N A T H A N I E L R O B E R T S

Everyone is family, every place is home.
Neither good nor evil comes from the other.
They are not the cause o f our suffering

nor do they bring us solace.
Death is nothing new to us.
We do not rejoice saying life is sweet.
Yet neither do we reject it bitterly.
For as the wise know,

a human life is but a raft in the rapids,
pummeled by cold rain
