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.
Do the real-life situations need to actually be part of reality? I'm thinking about using counterintuitive concepts such as the Monty Hall problem or the Banach-Tarski paradox. Would these be OK as real-life situations, or are they too abstract?
Imsuffering posted a topic in Theory of KnowledgeWE ARE DESPERATE, WE DECIDED TO DO IT IN A GROUP OF 3 SO WE HAVE 30 MINUTES TO KILL. Our knowledge question: Is it true that sense perception lets the imagination flow and affects the perception of reality in the moment of knowing? We thought about using the tv show the voice or aliens as our real life situation but we still have no idea what to do. We would be very grateful and bake you cookies
