Week 31

Welcome back for our last term of TOK.

This week, your online task is to explore a religion you are not familiar with. Have a read around and then address the following questions in a blog post.

1. Briefly describe the historical context of the emergence of the religion (where, when, who, why?)
2. What are the main distinctive beliefs of its adherents now?
3. For adherents of the religion, which is more authoritative; spiritual leaders alive now, sacred texts, individual perspectives?
4. What aspects of the religion do you find attractive and why?
5. What aspects of the religion do you disagree with and why?
6. How well do the TOK ways of knowing handle the approach to knowledge within the religion?
