Abstract

Questions can be viewed as triggers for explicit events of 'issue management'. We give a complete calculus in the dynamic-epistemic logic style for events of raising, refining, and resolving an issue, all in the presence of information flow through observation or communication. We explore a few extensions of the framework, including longer-term temporal protocols and multi-agent scenarios. Our approach differs from the two main existing accounts: Hintikka's interrogative logic and Groenendijk's inquisitive semantics, but we only sketch a comparison in this first paper.
