Theory of Knowledge by Nicholas Alchin second Edition
IB Diploma Programme
The Theory of Knowledge course is central to the philosophy of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. It encourages students to question the basis of knowledge, and to develop the ability to evaluate critically information from a wide range of sources. Unlike most academic courses, where students are used to being given facts that they are expected to learn, in this course they are expected to question knowledge itself - what do I know? How do I know it? Is it likely to be true or not?
The questions that have interested people over the centuries include:
what is good art?
Can I trust my senses?
Will science tell us everything?
How did the Universe start?
And, is there life after death?
Stimulates discussion and encourages critical thinking to help students achieve success. This Student's Book supports the IB Diploma's Theory of Knowledge course by providing an introductory framework that looks at how to approach a range questions. It includes a wide range of material from other sources to ensure diversity and to maintain engagement. - Guides students by helping them examine the nature of knowledge - Develops diverse and balanced arguments by raising questions in a variety of contexts - Encourages critical thinking skills and ways to look for answers
