Mientras los argumentos, en tanto productos, permanezcan en el centro de atención de los teóricos de la argumentación, el papel de las preguntas y el preguntar en la argumentación será en gran medida descuidado. Si en cambio partimos de que el proceso de argumentar va más allá de la mera presentación de argumentos, estamos en posición de tratar este tema. Este artículo es un primer intento de presentar, ilustrar y discutir ocho proposiciones relativas al papel de las preguntas y el preguntar en la argumentación. La posición del protagonista será concebida aquí como respuesta a una pregunta, ella misma situada en una compleja red de preguntas; y el antagonista será concebido como alguien que tiene el deber de conducir con esmero una especie de interrogatorio del protagonista
