Sept 2: TOK2, Journal entry. Use “Guns, Germs & Steel” as your concrete, real example. Choose ONE of the following questions:
In what ways might the beliefs and interests of human scientists influence their conclusions? Do the same considerations apply in other areas of knowledge such as the natural sciences or mathematics?
In what ways might social, political, cultural and religious factors affect the types of human science research that are financed and undertaken, or rejected?
