The essay is about the debate on James Cook death between Sahlins and Obeyesekere. Use the uploaded sources Firstly, Sahlins made his argument in the paper Captain James Cook: Or, The Dying God (see the document Sahlins 1 sent before for week 4). Secondly, Obeyesekere made his counterargument to Sahlins in the paper The Apotheosis of Captain Cook (see the document Obeyesekere 1 sent before for week 4). Thirdly, Sahlins made his rebuttal to Obeyesekere in the paper How Natives Think (see the document Week 5-Sahlins 2 sent before for week 5). Finally, Borofsky gave the summary of their debate in the paper Cook, Lono, Obeyesekere, and Sahlins (see the document Week 5-Borofsky sent before for week 5). These four papers are essential to understand the debate. This is the structure of the essay: 1. Give a summary of the debate (approximately 10%); 2.

Are there questions for further research that you would like to pose? 4. Then offer a conclusion (approximately 10%-20%)
