  Critique of Judgment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Critique of Judgement (Kritik der Urteilskraft, 1790), also known as the third critique, is a philosophical work by Immanuel Kant.
The first position, of causal determinism, is adopted, in Kant's view, by empirical scientists of all sorts; moreover, it led to the Idea (perhaps never fully to be realized) of a final science in which all empirical knowledge could be synthesized into a full and complete causal explanation of all goings-on in the world.
In this section of the critique Kant also establishes faculty of mind that is in many ways the inverse of judgement - the faculty of genius.

 Critique of Pure Reason - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Critique of Pure Reason (Kritik der reinen Vernunft), first published in 1781 with a second edition in 1787, is widely regarded as the most influential and widely read work of the German philosopher Immanuel Kant and one of the most influential and important in the entire history of Western philosophy.
It is often referred to as Kant's "first critique", and was followed by the Critique of Practical Reason and the Critique of Judgment.
Regarded as a ground-breaking work in Western philosophy, Kant saw the first critique as an attempt to bridge the gap between rationalism and empiricism and, in particular, to counter the radical empiricism of David Hume.

The Critique of Judgment is concerned with exploring reflective judgment in two intriguingly problematic domains--those of aesthetic and teleological judgment.
The discussion of the teleology of nature, therefore, was to serve as a counterpart to the discussion of art, for the former dealt with reflective judgment in a supposedly objective realm, while the latter dealt with reflective judgment in a supposedly subjective realm.
The judgment employed in art could thereby serve as a propaedeutic to ethics in that aesthetic judgment was but the purely formal version of the self-application of ethical norms that was to take place in exercise of practical reason.

 Kant's Aesthetics and Teleology
But reflecting judgment is also described as responsible for two specific kinds of judgments: aesthetic judgments (judgments about the beautiful and the sublime) and teleological judgments (judgments which ascribe ends or purposes to natural things, or which characterize them in purposive or functional terms).
Judgments of beauty have, or make a claim to, “universality” or “universal validity.” That is, in making a judgment of beauty about an object, one takes it that everyone else who perceives the object ought also to judge it to be beautiful, and, relatedly, to share one's pleasure in it.
The idea that aesthetic judgment plays a role in grounding the possibility of morality for human beings is suggested at a very general level in the Introduction to the Critique of Judgment, where Kant describes the faculty of judgment as bridging “the great gulf” betweeen the concept of nature and that of freedom (IX, 195).

 Critique of Judgment
The outcome is the judgment of taste which refers the representation of the object to the subject and his sensation of pleasure.
By pronouncing the judgment "This is beautiful" the judging subject expects the agreement of others not because it was given in the past but because the logic of the judgment of taste is such that it includes that claim.
A judgment with objective universal validity is always valid subjectively but an aesthetically claimed universality does not warrant the objective logical validity because it is not formulated by means of a universally valid concept that would entail the predicate of beauty.

 Kant, Immanuel -- Aesthetics [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
And judgment is investigated by the critical inquiry into those types of judgment in which the a priori principle of judgment is apparent: on the beautiful, on the sublime, and on teleology.
By this, he means that although the judgment is a judgment of the presentation of a particular (singular) object, no particular determination of either sensible intuition, or understanding forms a necessary part of the judgment.
In effect, Kant is saying that, were it not for the reflective judgment and the principle of its functioning here (the rational idea of an 'intrinsic' end or purpose), the ability to experience something as alive (and thus subsequently to study it as the science of biology) would be impossible.

 SparkNotes: Immanuel Kant: Critique of Judgment
Kant calls aesthetic judgments “judgments of taste” and remarks that, though they are based in an individual’s subjective feelings, they also claim universal validity.
Judgments of taste are universal because they are disinterested: our individual wants and needs do not come into play when appreciating beauty, so our aesthetic response applies universally.
Kant’s Third Critique is one of the early works in the field of aesthetics and one of the most important treatises on the subject ever written.

 [No title]
A critique of pure reason, i.e., of our faculty of judging on a priori principles, would be incomplete if the critical examination of judgement, which is a faculty of knowledge, and as such lays claim to independent principles, were not dealt with separately.
Hence it must only be allocated to the Critique of the judging subject and of its faculties of knowledge so far as these are capable of possessing a priori principles, be their use (theoretical or practical) otherwise what it may-a Critique which is the propaedeutic of all philosophy.
True, in the Critique of Practical Reason we did actually derive a priori from universal moral concepts the feeling of respect (as a particular and peculiar modification of this feeling which does not strictly answer either to the pleasure or displeasure which we receive from empirical objects).

 HYLE 3 (1997): Kant's Critique of Judgment and the Scientific Investigation of Matter
Judgment, guided by its a priori principle of purposiveness, becomes the essential power to unite all the faculties of consciousness, but also and important for science, to provide the conceptual framework for uniting the conditions of knowing with a system of nature.
As in the First Critique the faculty of representation has its a priori spatio-temporal forms and the faculty of understanding its a priori categories, so Kant discovers late in his critical phase, that judgment as an independent power is equipped with an a priori principle, that of purposiveness.
Judgment's dual function was Kant's rationale "for dividing the critique of judgment into that of aesthetic and that of teleological judgment" (CJ, 193).

 Denis Dutton on Kant
A judgment of taste about an object that has a determinate intrinsic purpose would be pure only if the judging person either had no concept of this purpose, or is abstracted from it in making his judgment.
The first sentence of the third Critique may propose that the appreciation of beauty involves referring the presentation of the object to the imagination, rather than cognition, but neither this sweeping claim nor its subjectivist implications are much supported by Kant after §16.
But though judgments of their beauty may not be cognitively determined by concepts (in the way that concepts determine the quality of fruits being graded for market), they are hardly independent of concepts.

 The Critique of Judgment (from Immanuel Kant) --  Encyclopædia Britannica
A final judgment is usually a prerequisite of review of a court's decision by an appellate court, thus preventing piecemeal and fragmentary appeals on interlocutory (provisional) rulings (see interlocutory decree).
A declaratory judgment is binding but is distinguished from other judgments or court opinions in that it lacks an executory process.
In some religions (e.g., Christianity) the judgment is of both the living and the dead; in others (e.g., certain primitive religions in Africa) the judgment in which God rewards or punishes men according to their actions occurs...

A major thrust of Kant's Critique of Judgment (Kant, 1790) is towards the relationship between beauty and morality, through consideration of the "supersensible substrate" of reality.
In this Section, his answer is that "judgment… applies the mere rule by which it reflects on that intuition to an entirely different object, of which the former object is only a symbol" (Pluhar, 1987, §59.4).

 The Henry James E-Journal
A subjective judgment, to Kant, is a non-empirical assertion that takes away the emphasis on the objective representation of an aesthetic object, amplifying the resultant "feeling in the subject as it is affected by the representation" (Kant 376).
A judgment becomes specifically "aesthetical" to Kant when, instead of affirming the logical and the rational (and thus objective) as standards of judgment, representations are specifically "referred in a judgment to the subject" (376).
This formal unity, however, is an attribute of cognitive judgment: the aesthetic "reflection" of judgment is essentially an act of recognition, an act which is subsequent to and a result of the preceding cognitive judgment.

According to Hegel, Kant 'spoke the first rational word on aesthetics', and The Critique of Judgment has formed the basis of much subsequent writing on the theory of art and beauty.
Kant distinguished judgments about beauty from scientific judgments, moral judgments, judgments of utility, and judgments about pleasure.
aesthetic writing Kant maintained that the judgment of beauty claims universal acceptance and is not derivable from or reducible to empirical conformity.

That was not because the concept of the beautiful or the nature of the judgment is peculiar, but because, I want to suggest to you, the judgment of taste is simply not a conclusion we draw from interacting with, describing, or interpreting works of art.
The judgment of beauty is not the result of a mysterious inference on the basis of features of a work which we already know.
The judgment of taste is prospective, not retrospective; the beginning, the middle, but never the end of criticism.

He shows that Kant not only made his "cognitive" turn, expanding the project from a "Critique of Taste" to a Critique of Judgment but he also made an "ethical" turn.
This "ethical" turn was provoked by controversies in German philosophical and religious culture, in particular the writings of Johann Herder and the Sturm und Drang movement in art and science, as well as the related pantheism controversy.
More specifically Zammito suggests that Kant's Third Critique was animated throughout by a fierce personal rivalry with Herder and by a strong commitment to traditional Christian ideas of God and human moral freedom.

It is said that Arendt’s reflections on the faculty of judging suggest a turn away from the vita activa and toward the life of the mind; in short, judging brought Arendt back home to Western philosophy, especially the philosophy of Kant.
Arendt’s attempt to develop an account of political judgment based on Kant’s theory of aesthetic judgment, say critics like Ronald Beiner and Jürgen Habermas, was deeply mistaken, for his transcendental philosophical approach to judgment leads away from the empirical realm and from anything that could possibly be considered political.
