The paper collects the answers of the authors to the following questions: - What is the significance of topological approach? - Can new chemical concepts be found by a topological approach? - What is the status of a chemical concept within a topological approach? - Should topological approaches provide measurable quantities? - Is it possible to predict the outcome of a topological approach without performing a calculation on a computer? - What are new domains for which topological approaches would be useful?
