Analogies in different AOKs / RLEs often have different goals, techniques, and results. A TOK essay on Prescribed Title #4 should look at a variety of analogies. In the case of this Banksy painting, the artist is drawing comparisons between the behavior of the UK MPs and chimpanzees.

A TOK essay that uses this or a similar RLE could look at some of the following:

  • The role analogies play in art as well as the specifics that are linked to the particular text and text type
  • The goal(s) of the artist with respect to trying to improve understanding and provide justification
  • How artistic techniques are used in the analogy and possible links with the WOKs
