    Theory of Knowledge explores ways of knowing and areas of knowledge, and it’s almost entirely built around big questions that don’t have simple answers, such as:
    How do we know? What does it mean to know? What is “good evidence?” Are the ways you know different from the ways others know? How does what we believe shape what we aspire to know? Are human rights universal? What role does culture play in our understanding of the truth and knowledge? How can government best contribute to a fair and just society?
