Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Question: a sentence within a communication context that requires one or more further sentences (see also answers). The question in many languages is characterized by a slightly altered word position, as opposed to the corresponding sentence, as well as an attached or pre-set symbol (question symbol). A response is not guaranteed and does not have to be done so that a question retains its form and content. See also statements, commands, sentences, speech act theory.

Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.

Warum-Erklärung/Bigelow/Pargetter: Gesetze (Naturgesetze) und Arten sind selbst keine Ereignisse, daher sind sie nicht in der geeigneten Kategorie, um als Erklärung zu dienen.
Lösung: durch Einzelereignisse, die unter eine Art oder ein Gesetze fallen.
