Because Why is the starting point, if you don’t know the ‘why’ then the answer will be useless.

Q: Where are my car keys?
A: On the kitchen table.

Just one example of an answer that is not rendered "useless" by not knowing any "whys".

A friend used to insist that "Why?" was usually a cover for "How?"

Why do you need your car keys? If you don’t need them you probably would not even look.

What difference if they’re on the kitchen table, under the bed or lost forever. Why do you need it?

Surely you’re looking for a reason, even if that reason is just to know, that reason is the why.

Why do you need your car keys?


I get what you're saying. But it's irrelevant to the question posed. Suppose instead that your wife asks you where her keys are and you let her know that they are on the kitchen table. Is your answer "useless" to her? Do you need to know why she is asking in order to give a useful answer?

Anyway, it's obvious one could tack on a "why" to anything and everything. Just my one and a half cents.

Ron,

Why may not mean much to those giving the answer but it is everything to those asking.

The wife wants to know where the keys are and if you ask her ‘why’ I bet she will tell you. Smile

But you’re right it can be tacked on to just about anything.

This is so funny. Who* knew it would get this wild in here.

Why are we debating about the use of "why"?

Is it because of free will, or are we secretly being controlled?
