In sensible judgement

Max Deutscher

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Only in being pleased at what is done can I judge it as right. Kant is correct, nevertheless, that my motive is not the object of my judgment's concern. In working to make a good judgment, it is not pleasure but the right result that one seeks. In taking the jury's decision to be right, one is pleased at it - one takes pleasure in it. At the same time, it would shift attention from judgment's proper object to find the point of the justice of the decision in one's having been pleased.
