Interpreting Kant's Critiques

Defends the position of the previous chapter in response to a direct critique of it by Hannah Ginsborg, from the perspective of a subjectivist reading of Kantian taste. The critique provides an opportunity for clarifying ways in which an objectivist reconstruction does not have the kind of unwelcome consequences that it might at first seem to have. There is a way of reading Kant’s argument that shows how taste can be called objective for reasons that are not tied to either the kind of objectivity associated with science or a mere knowledge of causal relations or to the specific kinds of rationalist doctrines that Kant was mainly trying to warn against insofar as he was very reluctant (as he obviously was) explicitly to call his theory an objectivist one.

Keywords:   beauty, causality, feeling, judgement of taste, objectivity, secondary properties, subjectivism
