Our teacher s watch the presentation and give us a fair score out of The scores are sent off to the IBO and they usually don't differ much from what you were predicted to get as they have nothing to challenge you with. Regardless of what the staff at my school had given us for our TOK presentations, IBO just moved it down to a 4 out of So in other words, if our presentation was worth a 9, it was moved down to a 4.
I will post deeper, more detailed analyses soon. Please ensure that you get the exact titles from your ToK Teacher, I am unable to print the exact titles here for copyright reasons. Click hyperlinked titles to be taken to longer descriptions.
Academic disciplines can overlap, but interdisciplinary approaches lead to confusion. How do the processes of knowledge production influence the categorisation of knowledge? Are disciplines culturally defined or objectively fixed?
Is the organisation of knowledge a product of a top-down or bottom up process? Is confusion a positive stage of knowledge production? Is confusion the outcome of pre-existing assumptions which may be incorrect? What is the role of hegemony? The development of Vaccines, the debate between conventional economics and behavioural economics.
Confidence comes from knowing little, as knowledge increases doubt increases. Discuss with ref to 2 AoKs. The choice of AoKs will be absolutely crucial.
I think that I would contrast Religious Knowledge with Natural Sciences initially arguing for the proposal of the title. Then in counterargument I would use examples from RKS where increased knowledge has not increased doubt, and may have increased confidence.
Further, finding examples from Nat Sciences where increased knowledge has increased doubt, and possibly reduced confidence. RKS for the proposal Counter 1: Natsci against the propsal Argue 2: RKS against the proposal Counter 2: Without assuming uniformities there can be no knowledge.
This is a patterns vs exceptions essay. Genre change in the Arts, the importance of exceptions in ethics. Is suspension of disbelief essential in AoKs? I think that either approach would be acceptable.
Disbelief in the Arts could be a willingness to accept the abstracted or reified, whilst disbelief in the Natural Sciences could be the use of conceptual representation in the place of empirical certainty for example molecular diagrams in Chemistry, or the description of nuclear fission in Physics.
An interesting discussion about Indigenous Knowledge Systems could posit that suspending disbelief is central to the very definition of some IKS. By setting this up as a subjectivity vs objectivity debate it would be easier to develop the counterarguments that suspension of disbelief is not required for knowledge.
The older the discipline the higher the quality of knowledge of that discipline.
The term historical development could infer that the discipline has developed ie changed over time, as such students could set up static disciplines against dynamic disciplines in counter argument. The quote refers to academic disciplines. However, I think the focus of the essay should be on the debate of whether the duration of development is linked to quality of knowledge.
There are also interesting discussions to be had with this essay concerning the fossilisation and petrification of knowledge.
Is an agreement to disagree actually a form of consensus? One way of looking at this essay is to go into the process of knowledge production. The essay partly hinges around the definition of the word robust.
