John Marsden Writing Topic #110
‘In order to make a mistake, a man must already judge in conformity with humanity. (Ludwig Wittgenstein)**
I had trouble researching the meaning of this quote and therefore understanding it, however like with all of the other Discursive writing topics, I will provide my own interpretation.
My interpretation of this quote is that for anyone to make a mistake they must know what human beings define as a mistake in today’s society.
