TOK ASSESSMENT ESSAY - Ideas for two areas of knowledge on the following question...?

"To gain an understanding of the world we need to make use of stereotypes." With reference to two areas of knowledge, to what extend do you agree with this statement?

Any ideas of two areas of knowledge that will go well with the question? At the moment, I'm out of ideas... :(

Human sciences? Like how people from certain areas/cultures are more likely to act a certain way?

You might want to evaluate stereotypes as well. Like the nature of it and if it can be considered 'valid knowledge'.

Hope that helps.

Yep, human sciences; link to culture and you can definitely write a lot for knower's perspective for this. I think you could also try to link in ethics... like to link in with judgments on how we see stereotyping.

That's quite a hard question to get a start with. Haha good luck :D
