The philosophy of questions is all about the role that questions play in our lives. What is a question. Why do we ask questions. What makes a question good or bad. The philosophy of questions asks all of these questions and many more. Simply put, it is the philosophical study of questions.
Questions matter not only because they lead to answers but because they determine what answers we get. If we don’t ask questions, we won’t get answers, but if we don’t ask good questions, we’ll end up with answers that we don’t want or need.
On this website you’ll find resources for the philosophical study of questions.
