Details

Each time that Plato made his Socrates initiate a philosophical conversation, everywhere throughout the medieval disputations, and also in the philosopher's day-to-day struggle questions are a central tool. But there is no unifying philosophical framework for the categorization, formalization and regulation of questions, although there have been numerous offers. This conference/workshop addresses the justification and comparison of different approaches to question. In particular, the participants strive to

  1. formulate general problems for a formal treatment of questions,
  2. compare different frameworks for formal questions with regard to how they categorize and formalize questions,
  3. compare different frameworks with regard to how they regulate the practices of asking and answering,
  4. investigate specific kinds of questions and how they can be treated in a given framework, and
  5. situate the activities of asking and answering in a wider framework of cognitive discourse.
