Hi,

Does "discrimination" in the following sentence mean "the practice of treating someone or something in an unfair way" or "the ability to judge what is of good quality and what is not"?

Good taste is much more a matter of discrimination than of exclusion, and when good taste feels compelled to exclude, it is with regret, not with pleasure.(Quoted from W. H. Auden's The Dyer's Hand)

Thanks very much!
