An explanation is an answer to an explanation‐seeking why or how question. Explanation is interest‐relative in the sense that which why questions are asked depends on the interests and background knowledge of the audience, but what is the right answer to the posed question is an objective matter. Explanation provides information of relations of dependence. Typically, this dependence is causal, but there are also constitutive explanations. Intentional and functional explanations are subspecies of causal explanation.
