Theory of Knowledge for the IB Diploma

Author: Richard van de Lagemaat

Published: June 20, 2011

Format: Paperback

Now available as a full-colour version, this is a comprehensive, bestselling title for the Theory of Knowledge course in the IB Diploma Programme. It is also useful for students following other critical thinking courses.

The fundamental question in Theory of Knowledge is ‘How do you know?’ In exploring this question, the author encourages students to ask relevant questions, use language with care and precision, support ideas with evidence, argue coherently and make sound judgements.
