The Law of Human Nature

“Quarrelling means trying to show that the other man is in the wrong. And there would be no sense in trying to do that unless you and he had some sort of agreement as to what Right and Wrong are; just as there would be no sense in saying that a footballer had committed a foul unless there was some agreement about the rules of football” (C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity , ch. 1).

One response to “The Law of Human Nature

  1. I like Aristotle’s maxim that to say absolutely that all things are relative makes no sense.

    “Meaning” in and of itself can not exist unless we first assume a point of reference.
