You should watch the film, “The Revisionaries”: You should also read the article entitled “Non-Overlaping Magisteria,” by Stephen Jay Gould.
This film reports consists in answering two essay questions that will ask you to reflect upon the materials covered during the course. You should carefully prepare well-written answers to the questions listed below. You must submit one single document in Word with both answers. Please, do not quote: you must use your own words and paraphrase (if you do quote, points will be taken away). No research is necessary for you to complete this assignment. Both questions must be answered in one single document in Word to be uploaded on Turnitin.com.
1) Explain your understanding of the content of the film by a) writing a few words (one paragraph maximum) about what the central issue/focus of the film is; b) list and discuss the claims that the filmaker is making about that central issue throughout the film When answering, make references to both the textbook and this film. You should go right to the point(s) and use about 1.5 to 2 double-spaced pages. (Beware: answers that are too short might result being incomplete and too superficial). (100 points)
2) Explain in your own words, using key passages of the course’s materials, and key passages of the short text “Non-Overlapping Magisteria” (no quotation allowed) how the content of the course might eventually help you make an analytical assessment of the filmmaker’s claims, and of the actions of, and statements by, those depicted in the film. You should use 1.5 to 2 double-spaced pages (or more) to answer this question. (Beware: answers that are too short might result being incomplete and too superficial).
