The Judge-Dependence of Aesthetic and Moral Judgement

Publications: Contribution to journalArticlePeer Reviewed


This paper develops an account of judge-dependence, conceived of as a generalization of the better known notion of response-dependence. It then solves a number of problems for the view that aesthetic judgements are judge-dependent in this sense. Finally, a parallel case for the judge-dependence of moral judgement is assessed.
