1. This course has looked at both ancient and modem religious traditions showing how they exhibit different attitudes towards death. Choose one modem religion that we have discussed in class and one ancient religion that we have also looked at, and describe their different approaches to death. Then, discuss the ways in which their attitudes, rituals, and other death practices exhibit some degree of similarity.
2. Elizabeth Kubler-Ross discussed the denial of death in negative terms and distinguished it from acceptance. How did her perception of dental differ from the cultural denial of death and from the ways in which denial is currently understood as a psychological process? Critique her approach from what we now know about the psychology of denial.
