words, AOKs that require clear evidence to support the knowledge they deal with. The arguments for this essay need to be based on history studies forensic anthropology dissertations that have been done only in the context of the past, and human science cases that have not drawn on past events. There are many ready-made examples for the natural sciences, such as stem cell research, animal experimentation, etc. In terms of counterclaims, it is the arts that are better served by real life situations, with plenty of pieces produced in order to tackle (and produce) ethical judgements. But here, too, you should be able to find scientific knowledge that has been discovered in order to solve ethical problems.
You should be very wary of simply repeating phrases and words from ToK websites. The focus of the discussion should not be the differentiation between "right" and "wrong" ideas but on the quality of justification and a balanced approach to the knowledge claim in question. A quick look at the new curriculum will provide new possibilities for this, and perhaps provide a key to approaching the question (considering the validity of faith, imagination, intuition, memory). Do facts provide us with knowledge? Does it want students to assess how well this approach works in the two AOKs (ie whether it leads us to certain knowledge)? To what extent does ethical knowledge involve the consideration of factual information? The IB originally had six areas of knowledge: mathematics, natural sciences, human sciences, history, the arts and ethics. Although this could conceivably work with any AOK, the arts are trickier to use within this title, as is mathematics. Note the use of the word sometimes, though, meaning that you shouldnt make generalizations about the whole of knowledge.
