You have been hired to write an essay to be included in a book for high school students called Opposing Viewpoints. Your task is to select and research two ideas which historically have been in conflict or even caused social conflict and propose one of the ideas as a better solution to societys problems.
Alternatively, if you find that two ideas are complimentary, that they work together rather than against each other, you may argue for adopting both as necessary for the improvement of people and society. For example, you might consider Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung and conclude that psychoanalysis of sexual repression is appropriate treatment in some cases but in others psychoanalysis of archetypes is necessary.
Be sure to explain two ideas and identify the originating person of those ideas, examine those ideas critically in comparison/contrast, decide and be persuasive about which idea is preferable.
