Philosophy Question

Last year, I was enrolled in a Philosophy class at my college. I was never
particularly good at thinking philosophically, so I barely scraped my way
through the class. When it came to be finals time, I started hearing rumors
about how difficult the Philosophy final was going to be. A guy told me the
final the year before was to write an assay in response to the question "What
came first: the chicken or the egg?" My friend (who was also in the class and
shared my lack of skills) and I were terrified. The day of the final
finally arrived and I was handed a paper with a single question:
Why?
I stared stupidly at the paper for about ten minutes trying desperately to
comprehend what I was looking at and figure out how in the hell I was going to
answar this titanically vague question. I finally glanced over at my friend and he
glanced back at me. His glance told me he and I were in the same boat. Finally,
after about an hour, an answar finally came to me out of the blue. I responded
to the question with a single word:
Because.

this brilliant answer, I got an F. My friend, however, was a different story. He

The correct answer was "So"

You see, he asked a very vague question.

The answer "Because" isn't vague. if you had put "So", he would've given you a B-

add "serious" to that......

IT's A+ material
User avatar #57 - JasonBourne (02/15/2010) [-]
Well, what is "why" besides the adverb that marks the beginning of a question? There is no information pertaining to this particular use of the word "why" so there is no way to know how to answer this particular question. Technically, If you begin your response to this particular question with the word "because" followed by an explanation as to "why" your answer can never be wrong. However, the fact that this particular gentleman has recieved an F is beyond me and the fact that his friend has recieved a C+ for asking a contradictory question I find rather peculiar. I believe the teacher asked for a definition of the word "why" to which I would've responded: Why-an adverb used to ask or talk about the reason, purpose, or cause of something

Why? Because everyone can fail. But not everyone can live up to the achievement.
