It's Mostly in How You Ask the Question
AbstractAbstract Research can be successful only if the problem is good; it can be original only if the problem is original. But how can one see a problem, any problem, let alone a good and original problem? For to see a problem is to see something that is hidden. It is to have an intimation of the coherence of hitherto not comprehended particulars. The problem is good if this intimation is true. (Polanyi, 1966, pp. 21–22).
