Abstract
From numerical simulations of highest spatial resolution and high resolution observations, we may guess the science questions to be tackled with future large solar telescopes. Selected examples are discussed, trying to determine the instrument requirements for answering questions regarding polarimetric accuracy or spatial and temporal resolution. Besides such foreseeable science questions, however, it is worthwhile to recall that the best discoveries come unexpectedly and to wonder about what instrument capabilities may be most likely conducive to the unexpected.
