    My knowledge of this is appalling, but the furs of valencia (a set of local laws) might be worth investigating...

    honestly and seriously? I'd tell you to avoid Jane Austen like the plague when it comes to considering a book for EE. Seriously. P&P's such a well known book and it's going to be really hard to find a topic that hasn't been combed through before. A lot of people have written about it. Everything you could look at about it has been done before. So you may risk boring the examiner if you write about such a well known and loved classic. I considered doing P&P myself, actually but then I didn't end up doing it for the reason above.

    thanks for the advice..ive finished my ee now..turned out pretty gud i think
    what did u end up doin it on then?

    my EE title is:
    "the dilemnas of blind acceptance of repressed memories."
    a bunch of psychological BS if you ask me.
    but hey, thats all IB is anymore.
    but tell me, does anyone know the minimum word count for the EE.
    cuz i've got roundabouts 2,500, will write about 500 or so for the conclusion, but i really dont think i'm going to want to write a 1000 more words.
    any help?:rolleyes:

    I want to do my ee in business and management- although i'm not sure what i want to do it on. my moms bf has a lot of different companies so i was thinking about analyzing accounts etc and then discussing the advantages and disadvantages of his business entering a joint venture with this other company [ he's investing in an oil refinery that's worth half a billion dollars!] (i guess it's good that i have this opportunity) but i'm not sure if i'd be able to write enough on it. Also if i use his company for the ee i have no idea what im going to write my business IA on (maybe my brother's company which doens't produce a lot of financial reports)

    suggestions?

    Philosophy. Mine was super hard (i felt that my theories would be taken as a bunch of nonsense). It was something along the lines of: "Could Aristotle's concept of Eudaimonia redress the modern happiness problem in western society?"

    As in human flourishing as a path to happiness vs. consumer culture happiness/ instant gratification/material satisfaction.

    Enviro. Systems.... I mean, there is always pollution management assesments... I know someone who got an A for his EE by sitting at the beach monitoring the water pollution or something.

    Look at the Trent Biotic Index and maybe compare it to another ways of monitoring water pollution (boring). lol animal behaviour is really interesting but its more linked to biology.

    You could look at evidence supporting Plate tectonics... thats pretty interesting,though not very practical.

    I would've done it about pollution but that is a really big subject and i know many people are going to do it on that.

    I have a topic but not really sure if it is a good one:
    "Has global warming affected the size or quantity of deserts in the arabian peninsula??"

    That is veeeerry broad I think! (the one about the Arabian peninsula). I made the mistake of making mine too broad... try to be more specific, look at a smaller area perhaps , and you would have to go and do practical investigation. (science EEs are just long lab.reports).

    I did an Enviro. investigation on biodiversity on sand dunes (succession topic). This might be relevant if you want to study the Arabian peninsula.

    heyy guyss..

    my question is

    'assess the significance of the Great Depression on Hitler's electoral successes between 1928-1933'

    I'm a bit worried that this is a bad question because we study Hitler as a part of our course? what do you guys think?

    I'm doing mine on philosophy.

    "Can Aristotle's ethical theories be used to morally justify the act of euthanasia?"
    Wow, sounds very ToK-ish of you.

    Mine is;
    "From Romance to Refractory Aesthetic? Examining underlying implications of the 'Persecuted Heroine' trope in The Grimms 'Aschenputtel'"

    Not as inventive as some I have seen, but am enamoured. :]
    well-fit.
