~ Determine what are the five most beautiful objects brought back. Solution? Be disinterested (Kant) 1. I like this painting 2. This painting is beautiful How are these two statements different? The first is clearly a judgement of taste (subjective), which the second is an aesthetic judgement (objective). According to philosopher Immanuel Kent (1724-1804), we must delineate between these two types of judgement. Making an aesthetic judgement requires us to be disinterested. In other words, we should try to go beyond our individual tastes and preferences so that we can

appreciate art from a universal standpoint.
