ToK year 1 classes continue their exploration of the factors that may support and/or impede us as knowers in our pursuit of knowledge.
What is becoming more clear is that these factors, like imagination, intuition & memory, do not work in isolation but instead form a type of network that may aid us as we try to discern fact from fake news.
We are also coming to realize that these “networks of ways of knowing” have an equal capacity to mislead us, contributing to our reliance on a number of logical fallacies & cognitive biases which hinder our ability to effectively evaluate what we know.
In other words, fake news becomes fact & we fall for it all the time.
Knowledge Seminars continue in B5 G20, 21 & 29 on 12 & 14 November. Come share with us how you know.
