“To what extent do expectations affect knowledge acquisition in the Natural Sciences?"

What would be a good claim and counter claim for this knowledge question?

Hi, this might be a tangent to your question, but don't you think changing the word expectation to "intuition" would be better and more TOK-ish?

 

To find a claim and counter claim for this question, do you mind letting me know what is your real-life situation?

I think for this essay question, you may want to talk about the scientific method (look into the hypo-deductive method, and emphasize on the question, purpose, hypothesis), and find some real-life, concrete examples to support your claim.

 

For a counterclaim, I would consider examples of paradigm shifts for that.
