Random information on the term “Asked”:
Erotetics or erotetic logic is a part of logic, devoted to logical analysis of questions. It is sometimes called the logic of questions and answers.
The idea was originally developed by Richard Whately. For example, he noted the ambiguity of the interrogation “Why?”. (1) It could be a reason, such as why the angles of a triangle sum to two right angles, or (2) a cause, such as why days are shorter in winter than summer, or (3) a design requirement as in a timepiece.
In 1936 Whately’s work was revived by Eugeniu Sperantia. In 1955 Mary and Arthur Prior recalled Whately’s suggestion for a variable copula to write questions symbolically. Recognizing the consequent symbolic calculus, they note that it is insufficient for the logic of interrogatives, which is antisymbolic.
In 1940 R. G. Collingwood published An Essay on Metaphysics in which he examined presuppositions in statements and questions. In fact he claimed “Every statement that anybody ever makes is made in the answer to a question.” By way of explanation, he wrote “In proportion as a man is thinking scientifically when he makes a statement, he knows the statement is the answer to a question and he knows what the question is.” In this sense, when thinking is scientifically ordered, a question is logically prior to its own answer. Collingwood also asserts that “Each question involves a presupposition”.
