RE: Why?

The question does go to the heart of fundamental questions of human culture. Is there a rational explanation for everything? Is the principle of sufficient reason a good foundation for culture? It is the assumption of science.
On the other hand, is the principle of sufficient reason just a disguised expression of the will to power as Nietzsche claimed? We delude ourselves by seeking for truth and scientific explanations of events.
The latter view seems to be holding sway in most academic circles nowadays. I'm not convinced it's the best answer.

What kind of academic circles believe the search for scientific truth is delusion? Not scientific circles, I dare say.....
