Eight Characteristics of Religion In an essay, address the following:
Identify and briefly describe the eight key characteristics of religion developed in your reading.
Explain how the etic and emic perspectives describe your own religion or religion with which you are familiar.
In etic, how would an objective researcher describe the religion including specific elements?
In emic, how would a practicing member see the same reality?
Quote an “authoritative religious leader” from this religion as part of your emic paragraph, in addition to your scholarly source. (E.g., Buddhism-Dali Lama; Catholicism-Pope) How does understanding this add to your understanding of your chosen religion? What does it add to your approach to patient care?
