Alles-anderes-ist-menschenwerk Definition

“Everything else is the work of man.” “Everything else is a human construct.”

Origin of Alles-anderes-ist-menschenwerk

  • 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.
