Reasons why versus explanations

Reasons why versus explanations
April 23, 2010, 08:24:26 AM
This one will always fascinate me: how some people have reasons for doing things, but other people have explanations of why they do them.

Take your average metal crowd. They love intense, technical music but shy away from classical guitar because their friend-group won't get it. That's an explanation, or logic after the fact, not a reason for doing something.

Interesting how often you can see it.
