I once read a remarkable phrase: "the Knowledge of what to consider the answer, is tantamount to knowing the answer." In other words, if I know the content of the answer, know the contents of the issue. It seems that everything is turned on its head. After all, we therefore ask the question that don't know the answer, because if you know the answer, then why the question. So we common sense. However, this approach has a great meaning, which in fact is the basis for question-answering relations.
There are various approaches to the solution of the question, characterize the different the depth of her knowledge and study. Probably no one would argue with the fact that this issue is more or less the totality of knowledge. In other words, in order to ask a question, the researcher should already have some idea of what he wants to know through this question, i.e. a question that already has some knowledge. In fact, if we ask, pointing to the animal, "who is this?" not "what is this?" it means that we know at least that this object is an animate being.
You can say, and it will no doubt be right that the question is a kind of microtheory, a certain system of knowledge, which one part (question mark) describes known and mostly our past knowledge, and the second part (response) covers a lack of knowledge, i.e. what we want to know. When we ask, "if Columbus discovered America?", there are known (America open), the unknown (who discovered America), and hypothetical knowledge (an assumption that is made by Columbus).
When in the sociological literature say about the research program, we understand this to be primarily a conceptual vision of the research problem, which can be presented as hypothetical knowledge. Conceptual knowledge is frequently presented as a software issue, but this equally applies to any matter, including to personal. The difference between them is only the level of generality of conceptual knowledge. However, in sociological literature software and personal questions and share very substantially. Personal question is understood as a technical, instrumental apparatus the removal of specific information, etc. This is a fundamentally incorrect position.
However, in order to understand the nature of the question we have to go away from the subject of the question and refer to the nature of subject-object relations. It appears that the nature of the issue, its nature and content should be sought in the nature of intersubjective relations.
What does it mean? All social existence is the result of relations of people and in atomic terms - a relationship between two specific individuals. To realize themselves as a subject, as a single system of existence man should be required to enter into a relationship with an object or with another person. But to interact with the object means to reflect it first partially and then in General in the last of his conceptual knowledge. There is no other way, because only in this way, any object caught in the field of view, or better to say in the field of activity of a subject, acquires in the subject's consciousness, man its informative value. For example, if I hit accidentally or on purpose, better than the last, some space and planet, leaving the ship, you notice on the horizon or at his feet something is moving, I immediately conclude that it is alive. My last concept, my past system knowledge helpful suggest that everything that moves is the animate living thing. The object caught in my eye (or rather, actions) with only one the only sign that he is moving, owes its substantial value in the conceptual system "alive - not alive".
