Identify a case study either from the media (online newspapers etc.), or journal article which is illustrative of an aspect of the critical perspectives on knowledge. You should address the following questions in your essay: What is knowledge? What are the philosophical standpoints of knowledge? What kind of philosophical standpoints are applied to the case study and why?

You should review relevant literature on the research philosophy (epistemology and ontology). Using your case study as the example, critically reflect on the ways in which the theories and critical debates from the lectures and your own reading, help you to explore the complexity of the issue in an essay format. 2,000 words limit.
