I have an assignment about intro religion
Using the following definition of religion: “Religion is (1) a system of symbols which acts to (2) establish powerful, pervasive, and long-lasting moods and motivations in [people] by (3) formulating conceptions of a general order of existence and (4) clothing these conceptions with such an aura of factuality that the moods and motivations seem uniquely realistic.” –Clifford Geertz
A analyze yourself using the theoretical framework above. The purpose of this assignment is to assess whether you understand the basic concepts of the study of religion. Using Geertz’s definition of religion on page 8 of Anatomy of the Sacred, identify what 3 symbols act most powerfully in your life to the ends he describes. This will serve as your thesis for this assignment. Following this, support the ‘thesis’ by describing & defending your chosen symbols meaning against the backdrop of suffering & evil. Detailed assignment instructions and format are provided in the course.
