I blame Kierkegaard

My son is not yet two years old (well, in a couple of weeks) and as I write this I can hear him in the baby monitor repeating why, why, why as he falls asleep?  I blame Kierkegaard.

Is it just me or have the natural sciences unjustly appropriated the word ‘why’ as their mantra?  Isn’t theirs a question of how?
