  1. I'm doing my TOK presentation on Trump's decision to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel. I have a couple of KQ's but I'm not sure they entirely relate to the RLS, or if they incorporate every aspect I'm going to be talking about. One of them is: In what ways does authoritative decision affect values and beliefs of groups? Would this be fine? Do yu have any other suggestions?
  2. HELP! So im currently trying to formulate my knowledge question for my TOK presentation which I am working on. My real life situation has to do with artificial intelligence and their consciousness in relation to humans. Currently my KQ as it stands is ; To what extent can reason be used as a way for artificial intelligence to exhibit human-like consciousness? My fear is that the question is not relevant as an exploration of knowledge issues in tok. Does anyone have any ideas which could help me out?
  3. This is my first post on this website - I've been relying on your answers for surviving through the year, so maybe if I scream into the yawning you'll answer me back. I've been looking at creating a KQ off of a RLS, and though this is a practice presentation for my TOK course, I was really curious to how a knowledge question could be formed off of this very specific situation. The article link is here: https://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2017-07-24/black-women-picking-up-firearms-for-self-defense It plays a lot into gun control, racism, etc, so I think in the right hands this would be a really interesting topic (this is just my practice, so it's up there if one of you want to check it out). How would you guys formulate a KQ to this? I've got a couple like 'to what extent can the right to protect the self triumph the safety of a general population?', or 'what role does morals play in making exceptions to disadvantaged groups of society to ensure their wellbeing?', but none of them really apply, and to be honest, they make assumptions that aren't what I want to go off of.
  4. Hello, I really need help with formulating a TOK k.q.. I watched this video and was very interested in the idea of concussions experience and our perception of reality. Do you have any suggestions for the knowledge question?
  5. Hello, My class is started to talk about TOK presentations and I have a hard time coming up with a good knowledge question. My focus is on consciousness and ethics. I saw a GREAT tv series, "Westworld" and got an inspiration from it. I was wondering: what makes us humans humans and if AI (artificial intelligence) gain consciousness does that mean that they are human and need to be treated as one (which kind of connects to ethics). Any good knowledge questions for this??
  6. Hi! My class is starting to discuss the TOK presentation and I have to come up with a knowledge question. I want to do something about cults because I recently read a book about Charles Manson and found it very interesting. Any ideas?
  7. Hello, I am strongly considering writing topic 6 for my TOK essay, I have my 1st draft due on 21.11. I liked this topic since the very beginning, although I was very cautios when choosing it. To be honest, I also considered topics 1, 2 and 4. 1 and 2 seem quite easy and I am aware that lots of IB students write them this year. Topic 4 is quite difficult and ambigious, even though my teacher tried to explain it to us, and that I felt it may be quite a good topic to write about, I am still strongly for topic 6. I am planning to choose natural sciences and philosophy as AoKs. It seems like a problem to me, however, to find the KQs. Well I'd find 2 or 3, but I am not sure, how much of KQ should I include, since the topic actually is focused on KQs. Any thoughts? Is anyone of you writing the same topic? Your reflections on it will be highly appreciated, as my TOK teacher was not good and I feel really insecure about the essay and the presentation I'm having in December.
  8. Dear IB Survival, I'd like to do a TOK presentation about the Torture at Abu Ghraib and I'm trying to find an overall knowledge claim to fit with it. I want to focus on who is to blame, where does the responsibility lie when no one said anything? It's based on the bystander effect and the human sciences in general. I have no clue how to structure this as a knowledge claim... please help

  10. Hello IBers, Do you guys think that this is a good TOK presentation?: How does technology affect the way we acquire knowledge? I was thinking about Memory, Emotion for WOK, and mathematics for AOK. I haven't actually thought of any real life situations. But is this a good topic? and is the KI good? Thank You Soo much in advance.
