Formal paper #1
ANCIENT CODES OF CONDUCT
: In a paper of about 1500 words (typed, double-spaced),
compare (identify similarities and
differences in) the guidelines for behavior
set forth in the Code of Hammurabi (Sources of the Making of the
West 1.2), the laws from the Hebrew Bible’s Book of Exodus in Sources of the Making of the West 2.2 AND in
Exodus 21:1-22:24 [see
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Exodus+22&version=NRSV for one translation] as well as those referenced in the footnotes to the Hammurabi Code, and Launchpad Features 1.2: Declaring Innocence on Judgment Day in Ancient Egypt as well as the version at http://www.mircea- eliade.com/from-primitives-to-zen/110.html I’m particularly interested in what the sources suggest about the respective ethical standards or codes of conduct of these 3 ancient societies. GUIDELINES : This assignment is based on 3 relatively straightforward sources. However, drawing accurate and meaningful comparisons between them will require effort and care. Remember that you are reading EXCERPTS from longer documents, so do not assume that if something is not in the part you were assigned, then it never occurred to whoever wrote the document! Also remember that even though all the sources in some way address standards of conduct, they did not serve the same purposes in their time. While Hammurabi acknowledged the gods as the inspiration for his Code, unlike the Book of Exodus, there is no claim of divine authorship, nor, unlike Exodus, is his code primarily a religious document. On the other hand, the two Egyptian documents, unlike the Mesopotamian & Hebrew ones, are not law codes. Even though we know that Egypt had a system of justice, no written law code survives from the period we are studying. For discussion as to why this may be so, check out http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/law.htm . To be considered good [grade B or better], your paper must meet the following criteria: 1. You must make use of ALL the available sources, so let me know immediately if you cannot access any. 2. After reading your introduction, someone who has not read this assignment sheet and who may not be familiar with the sources should be able to understand what your paper is about, what you are trying to establish, and why knowing this should matter to someone interested in understanding the development of Western Civilization. A good introduction should also give someone who doesn’t care about your grade a reason to read the rest of the paper. So DO NOT begin by saying, “In this paper, I am going to. . .” Rather, begin by giving people a reason to care about what you’re going to discuss. Then explain how you’ll explore the topic. 3. Fulfill the assignment directly and completely. DO NOT simply summarize the sources. Rather, identify similarities and differences in the kinds of conduct they encourage and prohibit. 4. When you make an assertion, be sure that you support it with evidence from a primary source . This means identifying or citing the source by title [not just Launchpad or the web address] relevant to your argument AND explaining HOW it supports your argument. In general, the more examples you use correctly use to identify similarities and differences among these codes of conduct, the better will be your grade. 5. Using examples, however, does not mean copying words. The paper should be entirely IN YOUR OWN WORDS, otherwise you will fail this assignment. In fact, you cannot really show HOW the evidence supports your argument without explaining it in your own words. Brief, properly cited quotations from the primary sources (NOT from the authors of the Hunt text or of the introductions to sources) can make what you say clearer, more persuasive, and more interesting. Any quotation should ALWAYS be PART of one of YOUR sentences. Quote EXACTLY or not at all! Here is an example of how to cite and quote from sources: The Egyptians and the Hebrews both believed that their God(s) would hold them accountable for the treatment of the animals they ate. For example, the Covenant Code in Exodus forbids boiling a kid in its mother’s milk. (Exodus 23:19) Similarly, someone reciting the Negative Confession asserts that he has “not caught ±sh with bait of their bodies.” (#32) 6. Your conclusion should tell the reader what these sources suggest about the ethical standards and religious outlooks of the 3 societies. What were the main similarities and differences in what they believed God(s) expected of them? in the kinds of behaviors they sought to encourage or discourage?
