I’m studying and need help with a Philosophy question to help me learn.
(1 paragraph response to one of the following questions)
- Between Raven and Anansi, which trickster do you find more sympathetic? Given tricksters’ amorality, is this even an appropriate question to ask about tricksters?
- Choose either Raven or Anansi and explain how he is either similar to or different from the Norse trickster Loki (as found in the Gylfaginning and as discussed in the “Norse Creation and Afterlife” and “Ragnarok” lectures).
- Choose either Raven or Anansi and explain how he is either similar to or different from the Babylonian trickster Ea/Enki (as found in the Enuma Elish or in the Epic of Gilgamesh).
- Bring up a point of your own! Be sure to develop and expand on it and to use examples.
