  1. For me personally, the difference is obvious, and is in the sphere of my motivation:

    • justification is when I try to avoid punishment (well, or some other unpleasant events)
    • An explanation is when I want a person to figure it out.
  2. To justify is to understand the true reasons that are consistent with moral concepts
    Explain – understand the reasons that led to certain actions
