In science, an attempt to make clear the cause of any natural event by reference to physical laws and to observations.
The extent to which any explanation can be said to be true is one of the chief concerns of philosophy, partly because observations may be wrongly interpreted, partly because explanations should help us predict how nature will behave. Although it may be reasonable to expect that a physical law will hold in the future, that expectation is problematic in that it relies on induction, a much criticized feature of human thought; in fact no explanation, however “scientific”, can be held to be true for all time, and thus the difference between a scientific and a common-sense explanation remains the subject of intense philosophical debate.
ETYM Latin explicatio: cf. French explication.
An explanation of the meaning of something.
ETYM Latin interpretatio: cf. French interprétation.
In music, the manner in which a performer plays a work. Except in the case of prerecorded electronic music, which excludes the performer altogether, the limitations of notation mean that a composer cannot indicate the most subtle levels of dynamics, expression, articulation, and other details of performance practice. Inevitably the performer is responsible for these, although during some periods it has been the convention for the musician to take greater liberties than during others. For instance, the 18th-century performer had much greater freedom than the 20th-century performer, not only to alter a composer's dynamics and articulation without criticism, but also, to a degree, to change the notes themselves.
1. A mental representation of the meaning or significance of something; SYN. reading, version.
2. An explanation of something that is not immediately obvious; SYN. interpreting, rendition, rendering.
