To do this, we must have some idea of what we were looking for. In other words, accepting an explanation as an explanation depends heavily upon the goals one had in the first place. A proposed explanation is an explanation if it relates to one's implicit goals. Thus, if one has the goal of being a millionaire one would require a different explanation of our sentence about American millionaires than if one were a communist who was intent on proving the inadequacy of capitalism. Explanation depends upon goals.
