- “Everything else is the work of man.” “Everything else is a human construct.”
In German, the phrase is "alles andere ist Menschenwerk"; "anderes" would be grammatically incorrect and is not used. English authors, however, often do use "anderes".
A corruption of German mathematician Leopold Kronecker's finite dictum “die ganzen Zahlen hat Gott gemacht; alles andere ist Menschenwerk” : “God made the integers; everything else is the work of man”. The reason for the addition of an "s" to "andere" ("anderes" is grammatically incorrect and not present in the German phrase) is unclear.
