  • 2. Checking reliability

    Corroborate/ check with other available sources or contextual knowledge
  • 3. Example
    Does this source prove that Buddhism began as a philosophy? Explain your answer.
    An account of Siddharta Gautama before he achieved enlightenment
    Siddharta Gautama decided to leave his palace of luxury to experience life as a commoner. He witnessed sufferings and pain and felt sorry for the people. He did not understand why people had to go through such ordeal and decided to seek answers to it. He went from villages to villages and was well received by many followers.
  • 4. Answers
    Yes, this source proves that Buddhism began as a philosophy to a certain extent. From the source, (give evidence) it is stated that Siddharta Gautama went from villages to villages and was well-received by many followers. This was when he was still a prince in search for answers to end all sufferings. This is well-supported by the definition of a philosophy which states that it is a way of thinking that does not involve any god/s. Hence this source does prove that Buddhism began as a philosophy.
  • 5. Answers
    However, this source has its limitations to prove that Buddhism began as a philosophy. From this source, it does not show that Siddharta Gautama has spread a belief to the people.
