Example text

But if they are to be anything more than arbitrary subjective pleasures, they need some other tribunal of accountability, and the common aesthetic sense of the human community, presupposed by each judgment of taste, serves as this tribunal. Pure aesthetic judgments are not objectively valid, but they strive for subjective universal validity. For the purposes of my current narrative, this is significant because by now, the aesthetic has not only broken free of the regulative clutches of the understanding, but has, as it were, established its own governing court of law – or at least every judgment of taste imputes the possibility of such a tribunal to the community of sensuous, discursive agents.

Melissa Zinkin’s highly original essay proposes a theory of the nature and ground of the imaginative synthesis that proceeds free from determination by concepts in judgments of taste. She uses Kant’s brief account of intensive and extensive magnitudes in the Critique of Pure Reason to build a reading of Kant’s account of judgments of taste in the Critique of the Power of Judgment. Her thesis is that cognitive and aesthetic judgments operate upon fundamentally different forms of sensible intuition; whereas the intuitions we subsume under determinate concepts have extensive magnitude, it is intensive magnitudes that stimulate judgments of taste, and these cannot be captured by discursive concepts.

Wiener Logik, 24:904–5. 40 Hannah Ginsborg at a concept that would include the particular trees presented to us, but also exclude fruit trees and include wooden houses? It is hard to suppose any explanation for our privileging the tree-characterizing features other than that we are already in some sense representing the sample objects as trees, so that possession of the concept tree is already assumed from the start. Now it might be objected that this problem derives from the artificiality of the example.
