The Origin of Judgment - The Origin of Judgment Introduction The guiding thesis of Experience and Judgment is that logic demands a foundational theory of experience, which at the lowest level is described as prepredicative or prelinguistic.1 Edmund Husserl pursues within that text a phenomenological elucidation of the origin of judgment in order that he might clarify the essence of the predicative judgment. He does so in the belief that an investigation into the form of prepredicative experience will show it to be the ground of the structure of predicative thought, and thus the origin of general, conceptual thought....   [tags: Judgment Edmund Husserl Essays]

Raised in the south, Flannery grew up in an atmosphere of overt racism and Catholic fervor. Both of these influences affected the way she wrote. Flannery O'Connor conveyed both her moral and religious values in her writing, and she consistently wrote about religion and race within this narrow perspective. “Many of my ardent admirers would be roundly shocked and disturbed if they realized that everything I believe is thoroughly moral, thoroughly Catholic, and that it is these beliefs that give my work its chief characteristics” (O'Connor Habit 147–8).Sh...   [tags: Analysis, Flannery O’Connor] 2599 words

The Two-Second Judgment - We have been taught to stop and carefully consider all the options/factors involved before making an important decision. But in Blink, Malcolm Gladwell finds that in complex situations, our initial two-second judgments, our blink moments, are often more accurate than judgments derived from lengthy, painstaking analysis. Although Gladwell is careful to explore situations where two-second judgments fail, the most interesting scenarios are where rapid cognition succeeds. It contradicts reason to think that a two-second judgment could be more accurate than a carefully made analysis, but in many cases it is....   [tags: Literary Analysis] 984 words

What´s Making an Aesthetic Judgment? - Making an aesthetic judgment is about expressing an opinion of whether a work of art is worthy of being intrinsically valuable. The means of arriving at an aesthetic judgment has being a topic of much debate among philosophers and psychologists, as it begs into question what the qualities of aesthetics are (if such exist), and the cognitive mechanisms that propel us to define them as so. Perhaps aesthetic judgment can be thought of as something derivational; for the means of arriving at any judgment involve a process of assessments, in which we decide whether something is good or bad, big or small, beautiful or ugly....   [tags: observation of art, value] 2781 words

Below reason are common sense, memory, and imagination. Finally, at the bottom are the 5 senses, emotions, and passions.

Athena first addresses Apollo's argument of the superiority of paternity, but she allows compromise by never fully admitting that Clytemnestra's murder was morally justified....   [tags: Aeschylus Oresteia] 791 words
