|Explanation: making a statement in relation to an event, a state, a change or an action that was described before by a deviating statement. The statement will often try to involve circumstances, history, logical premises, causes and causality. See also description, statements, theories, understanding, literal truth, best explanation, causality, cause, completeness.|

explanation / causality / Strawson: if causality is a relationship in nature, then statement is another - it is not a relationship between things but between facts and truths - e.: non-natural fact which extends to a natural fact which leads to a knowledge - here all objects are intentional - the correct description must always be selected.
