Hey guys, so I’m writing my TOK essay now, and I’m doing the second prompt: « the production of knowledge is always a collaborative task and ever solely the product of the individual »
I was thinking of talking about the natural sciences, chemistry in specific the creation of the periodic table, but for my second AOK I wasn’t sure what to use, I was thinking literature? And if literature does anyone know some puces where collaboration was important? Hahha
My argument is that indeed collaboration is important for the production of knowledge

Thank you so much!!!

Collaboration? Maybe you could say that some people or events which included them had a deep impact on some authors who wrote their books during that time. For example, 1984 and Animal were sky rocketing because George Orwell based it on real life. Stalinism, the proposal for socialism and communism, and people’s revolution (reaction) affected George Orwell.

Or you could be more simplistic and try to be more direct.
