What are TOK Principles?

Recommended Posts

Im preparing my mini-TOK presentation at this moment...

It says on the instruction sheet that we need to connect our topic to TOK principles.

What exactly are TOK principles??? It's not in the TOK text book or anything....

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanx very much!

You will see websites talking about "abstract TOK principles"; well I'm sure you have heard of the phrase "abstract knowledge issues".

'ToK principles' and 'Knowledge problems' are out-of-date terms for 'Knowledge Issues'. Form a general perspective, the principle behind any subject is related to its goal and method. ToK is all about exploring what constitutes knowledge and how we obtain (or aim to obtain) it. If I were in your position, I would interpret the instruction as 'include the purpose of ToK and its methodology in your presentation'.
