Abstract

Aesthetic common sense is here shown to have a central role in the resolution of the paradox of taste. In view of common sense Kant was able to bring together subjectivity with universality and necessity; and similarly, in view of common sense the judgment of taste can be prompted by something empirically given and yet be a priori in spite of the absence of determination through the categories.
