IB Theory of Knowledge | Guerin Catholic High School


IB Theory of Knowledge
Grade 11-12 (Required for full diploma IB students only)
2 credits

The focus of the IB Theory of Knowledge (TOK) course is to examine what we know in the various fields of knowledge and how we know it. The Theory of Knowledge course will engage students in critical reflection of the sources and bases of knowledge in various systems of thought and belief and how they relate to Catholic epistemology (philosophy of knowing). Students will be able to understand and evaluate sources, modes, biases, strengths, and limits of experience as a “knower.” Students will understand the difference between a relativistic perspective and objective truth that can be known with certitude.
