Theory of Knowledge, or TOK for short, is an interdisciplinary course that is part of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. It seeks to explore the nature of knowledge across a wide range of fields, including science, history, mathematics, and the arts, among others. The course asks students to consider questions such as: How do we know what we know? What counts as knowledge? And how do our beliefs and assumptions shape our understanding of the world?
The TOK article section aims to explore these questions and the many ways in which knowledge is constructed, evaluated, and challenged. From exploring the limits of scientific inquiry to examining the role of language and culture in shaping our understanding of the world, this section seeks to provide readers with a deeper appreciation for the complexities of knowledge and the challenges of interpreting and evaluating it. Whether examining the latest philosophical debates or delving into case studies that illustrate the practical implications of knowledge claims, this section seeks to engage readers in critical thinking and reflection on the nature of knowledge in our world.
