# Is a hypothesis a question?

Mar 11, 2017

$\text{An hypothesis is a proposal............}$. An hypothesis certainly LEADS to further questions.
And thus an hypothesis is an educated guess made on a limited number of experiments. It is a starting point for investigation to see if the proposed explanation can be generalized to other phenomena, to other experiments. Karl Popper, a noted philosopher of science, has argued that the most important feature of a scientific hypothesis is its $\text{falsifiability.}$
