Excuse vs. Reason

Key Differences

An excuse typically serves to justify a fault or failure, often used to avoid blame or responsibility. It can imply a lack of accountability. In contrast, a reason is a rational explanation for an action or event, indicating causality and logic.

Excuses are often seen as defenses for undesirable actions or outcomes, sometimes based on false pretenses or minimal truth. Reasons, however, are rooted in factual and logical explanations that clarify circumstances or motivations.

Reason

The faculty or capacity of the human mind by which it is distinguished from the intelligence of the inferior animals; the higher as distinguished from the lower cognitive faculties, sense, imagination, and memory, and in contrast to the feelings and desires. Reason comprises conception, judgment, reasoning, and the intuitional faculty. Specifically, it is the intuitional faculty, or the faculty of first truths, as distinguished from the understanding, which is called the discursive or ratiocinative faculty.
We have no other faculties of perceiving or knowing anything divine or human, but by our five senses and our reason.
In common and popular discourse, reason denotes that power by which we distinguish truth from falsehood, and right from wrong, and by which we are enabled to combine means for the attainment of particular ends.
Reason is used sometimes to express the whole of those powers which elevate man above the brutes, and constitute his rational nature, more especially, perhaps, his intellectual powers; sometimes to express the power of deduction or argumentation.
By the pure reason I mean the power by which we become possessed of principles.
