- The Origin of Judgment Introduction The guiding thesis of Experience and Judgment is that logic demands a foundational theory of experience, which at the lowest level is described as prepredicative or prelinguistic.1 Edmund Husserl pursues within that text a phenomenological elucidation of the origin of judgment in order that he might clarify the essence of the predicative judgment. He does so in the belief that an investigation into the form of prepredicative experience will show it to be the ground of the structure of predicative thought, and thus the origin of general, conceptual thought....   [tags: Judgment Edmund Husserl Essays]

What´s Making an Aesthetic Judgment?

- Making an aesthetic judgment is about expressing an opinion of whether a work of art is worthy of being intrinsically valuable. The means of arriving at an aesthetic judgment has being a topic of much debate among philosophers and psychologists, as it begs into question what the qualities of aesthetics are (if such exist), and the cognitive mechanisms that propel us to define them as so. Perhaps aesthetic judgment can be thought of as something derivational; for the means of arriving at any judgment involve a process of assessments, in which we decide whether something is good or bad, big or small, beautiful or ugly....   [tags: observation of art, value]
