The interpretivist dogma

…by understanding the rationale of a person can you see why they did what they did.

People commit transgresions, fact. But that doesn’t tell us very much

What does tell us a lot is the psychology of the wrong-doer. THAT, is something we need to understand.

Wittgenstein’s rule-following construes all action as meaningful. A transgresion must be seen as meaningful if it is to be understandable in any way.

The psychology of a transgressor; what is that like? What is it like to have the mind of a murderer and understand how they can sleep at night knowing what they did, what they do.

The path to truth is traversed only alone.
