  1. I think the most obvious one is “what is the meaning of life?” Why? Because all human beings are unique, and everyone finds the meaning of their existence for themselves. What gives meaning to one person (raising children, making a career, praying in a monastery) may be completely meaningless for another. Therefore, this is a question that everyone should find the answer to for themselves – although, of course, in this search, it can help to refer to how people in the past searched for and found answers to such questions.

    If we take it more broadly, then the questions from the series ” what is justice?”, ” what is good and evil?”, etc.also do not look solvable, at least in the foreseeable future. Why? Because our society is changing and developing, and at the same time our answers to these questions are changing. The medieval peasant could not even think of such a question as the unfairness of child labor exploitation or the inequality of women's rights – everyone would starve to death, and society would collapse if such a thing were discussed. But social conditions have changed, and with them the role of women in society has changed – the problem of social justice has required a new rethinking, etc. Since we do not yet have a clear understanding of the boundaries of social and technological progress, there is no reason to believe that such questions will be answered once and for all – instead, we will have more contextually dependent solutions that are applicable at one stage or another along the way.

    However, the lack of answers does not mean that such questions should not be discussed. It is worth it, and even necessary. We may not have found any definitive answers, but by discussing them and making certain decisions based on the results of such discussions, we were able to at least not kill each other and at least develop in the historically foreseeable period of time, developing a more humane attitude towards each other, gradually striving to ensure universal education (at least primary and secondary; think about it: in 1897, only 120 years ago, in Russia, 27% of

  2. questions about the meaning of life. no one has yet given an exact and unified answer, and it is unlikely that they will.
    questions about our reality. “what if we live in the matrix?” there are still disputes about this, and no one has given an exact answer.

  3. Rhetorical ones. For such is their nature – they simply do not require an answer. And in general, their function is not to ask questions, but to decorate the speech and stretch the timing of a public speech:)
