Prompt: The key distinction explored in the podcast is between naming words and describing words. Barry Lam suggests that if “god” is a naming word, people can disagree about their descriptions and still talk about the same thing; if “god” is a describing word, the compatibility of those descriptions matters a lot more. How do you think this distinction impacts work in comparative religious ethics?
Please write 300-450 words (about 1-1.5 page double spaced).The responses should be critical and analytical—not simple summaries of the assigned readings. A reading analysis should include an assessment of the texts, a clear argument, and an answer to the prompt. Please turn-in these analyses via Moodle the evening before class and have a copy available for you to review during class discussion.
