There are many ways of understanding the nature of philosophicalquestions. One may consider their morphology, semantics, relevance, or scope.This article introduces a different approach, based on the kind of informationalresources required to answer them. The result is a deﬁnition of philosophicalquestions as questions whose answers are in principle open to informed, rational,and honest disagreement, ultimate but not absolute, closed under further ques-tioning, possibly constrained by empirical and logico-mathematical resources, butrequiring noetic resources to be answered. The article concludes with a discussionof some of the consequences of this deﬁnition for a conception of philosophy as thestudy (or “science”) of open questions, which uses conceptual design to analyseand answer them.
