Saying that von Wright was of Scottish descent is very far-fetched. He himself pointed out that his earliest known ancestor lived in Narva in Estonia around 1650 and that this man may have had Scottish descent. So not only is there no proof of any Scottish descent, but even if true, we are talking of one single ancestor many generations and more than 250 years removed. If we would talk about descent using similar reasoning in other articles, almost anyone would be of multiple descent. JdeJ (talk) 11:34, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
