“This wondering…is where philosophy begins” (Plato, Theaetetus, 155d)
And then we ask questions…
The philosophy of questions explores the nature and value of questions and questioning in our everyday and intellectual lives. From the everyday questions of daily life (‘what is the time’, ‘where are my keys’) to the questions of philosophy, science and religion that aim to deepen our understanding of the world around us.
Questioning in all these contexts is at once an intriguing and indispensable human activity. The philosophy of questions is about exploring this activity and by doing so, attempting to understand something fundamental about what we do and how we live.
