Sometimes I have a philosophical question. So I want to ask it in philosophy stackexchange. Then I type something in the title line and there are similar questions, that makes me question my own question. Then I try to render my question more precisely, giving me new proposals, I try to render my questions even more precisely and so on. And at the end I resign and do not ask any question at all. I understand that it is necessary to restrict the number of questions when dealing with platforms with more restictive definable topics (e.g. stackoverflow). So duplicates can be prevented, and users will faster find a solution. But in my option, it does not make any sence, to do the same procedure with philosophical questions, because every question is too unique and every view of any individual is too unique, than it can be formalized in any way.

Should I rather use art, to express my love to philosophy?


From our help center

You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face.

This does not fit well with what is usually called "philosophical questions". Actually, it shows that this site is part of the StackOverflow/StackExchange network and not some random philosophy forum.

Thus, I would say that if your goal is to ask (=discuss) philosophical questions, this site is not the best place to do so.
