Some Ideas in Art and History for TOK question 2.

Recommended Posts

I'm assuming you're doing the May 2018 questions so let me know if you want other ideas for the 2017 questions instead.

I'm quite strong in history so here are the ideas I've had for it:

  • Throughout a certain period in history give examples of when scientists were incorrect in their thinking and how curiosity and questioning proved them wrong. For instance, during the fifteenth century when people were sure the Earth was round.
  • As we have grown throughout history how has the expansion of technology led to an increase in discovering but also more questions. For example, the invention of the microscope by Zacharias Janssen in 1595 and what questions have that led to?
  • Give an example of a time in history when knowledge was not necessarily increasing for humanity and how that affected people's questioning of the world around them. The best example of this is the dark ages.

Hope this helps and good luck to you!
