The considerations of the previous Chapter show that the question-andanswer systems can be built in different ways; these systems differ not only in technical details, but also in their philosophical and logical backgrounds. The controversy about the “nature” of questions is not a simple conceptual dispute; the accepted solutions to this problem determine the conceptual space for further research. If the radical reductionist view is correct, no logic of questions (in the very sense of “logic”, as opposed to “logical theory”) is possible. If the moderate reductionist view is correct, the logic of questions (whatever it might have been) should be developed within the framework of some other logic or logics. But the acceptance of the non-reductionist view leaves room for the construction of autonomous logic or logics of questions.
