What is subquestion? How should it be defined?
Questions can have subquestions. For instance, the question "Was Peter the Great an emperor of Russia?" is a subquestion of "Who were the emperors of Russia?", which is itself a subquestion of a broader question "Who were the rulers of Russia?". But what makes some question a subquestion of another question?
In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Paul Patton and Cyrus Al-Zayadi in 2021. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community.
