found it...

6 “This rubber tree won’t yield latex—the biologist blames the sapling, the geologist blames the soil, the contractor blames the unskilled labourer and the owner says it is fighting back at being controlled.” (Amithav Ghosh) If different Ways of Knowing or Areas of Knowledge yield contradictory statements about the world, on what basis do we choose among them?

My suggestion -choose another topic, as this one sucks.

Heya! I've just handed in my second draft for that essay as well. I'm one of the only ones in my year doing it, though! My teacher basically said it was absolute shite, so I'm writing it again. At the moment its looking pretty okay, i got a few similar essays off the internet, just to give me an idea about what other people are writing about!

Basically, I've been talking about how we acquire knowledge, and how we justify knowledge claims. I made sure to use all the linking questions, but unfortunately my paper turned out really stiff and systematic... but i'm glad to hear someone else in the world is doing this topic! lol.

Good luck on it, it will turn out just fine!

The question isn't that hard, you just have to get what it's asking for (what area of knowledge is the most objective/trustworthy and how do we know etc etc).

Hi boys and girls I'm new to this forum and I just want to say I am also a victim of the IB and also one of the victims working on TOK essay title no. 6!!

My teacher just needs my outline, hopefully I can change my topic
if you still want my outline feel free to say so (it sucks though)
