Charles ShepardDecember 1, 2017B3TOK EssayThe prescribed title I had chose was“We know with confidence only when we knowlittle; with knowledge doubt increases” (adapted from JW von Goethe). Discuss thisstatement with reference to two areas of knowledge.”In my opinion, this prescribed title issaying we have to know information on the topic before we cancel it out or some peoplegenerally are stuck in their own mindset without looking into the perspective of others. I think myreal life situation, the confederate flag, is a perfect example for this prescribed title. The twoareas of knowledge I will relate the prescribed title to are ethics and history.Just like in the real world, in Theory of Knowledge, ethics explicitly means what is rightand what is wrong. The confederate flag has two different sides to it and each depends on theiremotions toward the flag. Some people often argue that the confederate flag is a symbol foroppression, justification of slavery, etc. and the other side of the people argue that it is a symbolfor Southern pride and patriotism (Ferdman).This area of knowledge and real life situation agrees with the prescribed title becausepeople who are against the confederate flags have legitimate reasons as to why they’re againstit and it is because of the knowledge they have on the background of it. The confederate flagwas around during the time of slavery and even times after that and often those who still fly orsupport the confederate flag tend to be racist or are just blatantly ignorant to those feelings
