This paper attempts to analyze in detail the difference between a pragmatic and non-pragmatic approach to the explanation. The proponents of a pragmatic explanation analyze it by means of the concepts of context or audience. However, there could be various disguises of this type of the approach. It is possible to include the pragmatic concepts into the characterization of the item to be explained or the item that explains. On the other hand, the pragmatic approach may focus on the specific relation between the item to be explained or the item that explains. Finally, the paper underlines that there is a distinction between a pragmatic approach to the explanation and the pragmatics of the explanation, which should not be ignored.
