Rules I 59
Rule/Wittgenstein/Brandom: application of a rule may prohibit or permit performance - the rule determines the accuracy only if it is applied correctly - therefore, it always takes more rules, down to the last, implicit rules - Interpretation/Wittgenstein: Rules for the application of a rule.

Background: practices.

Wittgenstein: he uses "rule" in at least three different meanings:
1) Rule says explicitly what one must do.
2) everything that guides the behavior of the person whose behavior is being judged, no matter if discursively or conceptually.
3) sometimes just talks about following the rules when behavior is subject to normative judgment.
Games: the rule can be a substitute for teaching playfully. But also: a rule is used neither in the classroom nor in the game itself.
I 120
Color charts and even signposts are expressions of a rule.
There is no comprehension of a rule that is not an interpretation.
Brandom: no rule without asserting, judging and describing.
Make an announcement or giving orders is not rule-following.
I 820
Rules/Wittgenstein/Brandom: pro Wittgenstein: explicit norms are only intelligible against a background of implicit ones - Vs: nevertheless it is possible that interpretation is involved at every level.
