What is the 8-fold path, and what is its purpose? In presenting this, you’ll need to introduce the 4 Noble Truths, the 8- folds of the path (very briefly), and the meaning and use of the path, Instead of an evaluation, I’d like you to ask a question about the path, toward the end of your paper. The deeper the question is, i.e. the more critical engagement that it reveals with this weeks material, the better will be your essay. Since I’m not asking you to do a direct evaluation of the path, your “thesis” will actually be more like a statement of what you will show in your essay.
