A philosophical approach to scientific and everyday inquiry developed by Hintikka (1999). The model proposed that genuine inquiry as a question-driven process. It is based on the observation that human agents in problem situations answer initial fuzzy big questions by separating a series of subordinate small questions. From the perspective of trialogical approach, these questions are trialogical objects that the participants pursue across their studies.
