Theory of Knowledge
How do we know what we know, and can we prove it? Should we have to prove it- and if so, under what circumstances or conditions? These questions are the domain of Theory of Knowledge, the required core class for all IB Diploma candidates. Part philosophy, part psychology, and part cultural anthropology, the class will examine issues of knowledge and knowledge claims in all of the subject areas of the IB Diploma Program. Through student led projects, journals, presentations and papers, students will come to a critical understanding of the claims of knowledge in the world around us. The class will also serve as a forum for monitoring progress in CAS requirements and completion of the Extended Essay.
