Cause its common sense:
You need a light in order to light something. You know, so you can see it. That's your main light. Your "key" light.
Maybe the shadows made by your light are too dark for the look what you want? Gee, maybe Ill add another light to lighten them up. Fill.
Wow, The guys hair is dark and the background is dark and hes getting lost in the scene? Gee. If I hit em from behind with a light he'll pop out. Backlight.
Sometimes you'll use only a key. Some you won't use a backlight. Sometimes you'll use only a key and backlight. Some DPs get all philosophical and never use backlight cause they say it's fake (movies are fake, btw).
Learn three point lighting- think of it as a way to -explain- light sources not so much a technique...
