Beauty : Roger Scruton

Judging Beauty

Kant's claim is not that the judgement of taste is binding on everyone, but that it is presented as such, by the one who makes it.

When I describe something as beautiful I am describing it, not my feelings towards it
I am making a claim, and that seems to imply that others, if they see things aright, would agree with me.

Beauty, Roger Scruton
