  1. yeh you right!! anywaz Thanks for your opinion !
  2. Whut? Your segment of essay makes little to no sense. It's hard to believe you're struggling to come up with examples, for natural sciences at least! Abortion, stem cell research, blood donation, organ donation, animal use in research, drug trials... it's littered with ethical issues! For the arts look at things that appall people. Where do you draw the line between what is and isn't art - for instance, what about taxidermy? I suggest that if that is indeed a section of your essay, that you stick it in the bin and start instead by making a good plan of the WHOLE essay before you begin again. Start by focussing on the phrase "methods in production of knowledge". Think of the methods involved in acquiring knowledge in science (scientific method) and art. Then think of methods within those which might raise ethical issues. And then look at the things that we can't do via those methods because of them. Basically methods is the key word in this question, it's the bit that enables you to talk about TOK and how we acquire knowledge. okay thanks a lot!! plus the section of my essay wasn't exactly how i wrote it on word document but anywazz thanks for the idea!! really do appreciate it!!.... ii actually dont think i emphasised on the "methods" deeply!!.. think i need to go back and re plan like you said !!!
  3. Mine is the title #1 for the may 2014! "Ethical judgements limit the methods available in the production of knowledge in both the arts and the natural sciences. Discuss." but am struggling to come up with good claims and counter arguments for Art and Natural Science Also with examples!! My first claim is about how experimentations and observations of the continuous research (stem cell research) it becomes possible to progress as a human race “Scientists have finally recovered stem cells from cloned human embryos, a longstanding goal that could lead to new treatments for such illnesses as Parkinson's disease and diabetes””. Through this method of scientific inquiry, there can be answers to problems faced by the humans such as the emotional attachment to loved ones. Sam Harris stated that “If questions affect human beings then they do have answers whether or not the answers can be found.” but i dont know how to carry on!!! Help!!
  4. So i have started my Philosophy IA but am having like some big problems; My philosophy IA is on 12 YEARS OF SLAVE and my stimulus is this “I don’t want to survive I want to live…. I will survive I will not fall into despair I will keep myself hearty till freedom is opportune…. I was a free man. I’m not a slave”. said by Solomon Northup The thing is am doing standard Philosophy but it looks like my stimulus has little ideas on core themes ... so am kinda stuck on what to do now!! because i originally wanted to talk about Existentialism but it seems like there is little ideas from my stimulus!!!.. SO IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS WHICH I CAN TALK ABOUT FROM MY STIMULUS, PLEASE HELP OUT!!! ANY SUGGESTIONS ARE ALL VERY WELCOMED!! THANKS
  5. the idea seems good if your doing it but i don't need anything that would make my life hard.... i just need a simple but good idea that will allow me to gather loads of data.. and that will enable me to do some mathematical processes like chi squared, Pccm, etc thanks for the suggestion tho Thanks very much!!! and i totally understood what you said about the relationship of the two elements...i think i would continue to go forward with this idea and hope my teacher think is a good one.... ohh yeah , one thing i wanted to know more about is the survey bit?
  6. So, we just begun our maths studies project (internal assessment) and we are asked to gather our ideas by this thursday. i have an idea but am not too sure of what mathematical process would go with it and so if you have an idea.. please help me out so the idea i had was about Sleep and student performance... like i would be looking at sleeping patterns, to their average grades but am not sure if its a good idea in general. i also thought of something to do with games and gender,.... reaction time and gender but i don't know how to formulate them into a PROPER idea yet!!! So if any one has a better idea or any other way for my to structure the idea, please let me know ASAP!!!!!! your help is very much appreciated!!
