Based on Thoreau’s Essay
1. Imagine that you are Thoreau. Persuade your readers to accept your perspectives.
OR
2. If everyone accepted Thoreau’s ideas and lived them, it is clear that our society would not look the way it does today. Try to embody and defend the anti-Thoreau attitudes of contemporary Industrial culture.
Based on David Abram’s Essay:
3. Explain the function and activities of the shaman and defend the importance of this work for both human health and human understanding. Argue that we should continue to have people in contemporary US society who fulfill this role, and that much of the sickness (especially mental illness), environmental degradation, and disconnection from nature in our society is because we lack people such as shamans to work for the health of the community and the natural world.
OR
4. Argue that we do not need shamans or other similar types of healers in contemporary US/Industrial society, and defend this position with reasoning and evidence.
