Theory of Knowledge, is a class that every IB Diploma candidate takes, and is a main part of the IB Core, because it connects into every class a student will take here at the Academy. In Mr. Podell’s year 2 ToK class students discussed the various ways they know things as well as how they know they know those things! Confused? Then you are right where ToK wants you to be!
One of the main concepts guiding the class is for students to be willing to think through information and to understand just how they know the information that they understand. This week ToK Year 2 Worked on Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, the concept being if all you know is your reality, how real is your reality?
