Unanswered Philosophical Questions

Serious philosophers have debated and examined questions or statements from people like from Heraclitus, Camus, Nietzsche and Socrates, for centuries. And yet, life still presents many unanswered questions, some of which have not received the proper amount of attention and continue to confuse our daily lives.
