Kant’s Critique of Judgement is the third and final part of his series of Critiques, which began with Critique of Pure Reason and continued with Critique of Practical Reason

Critique of Judgement was published in 1790 and is divided into two parts, the Critique of Aesthetic Judgement and the Critique of Teleological Judgement. 

Our ‘judgements of taste’, as Kant describes our aesthetic judgements, have both a personal and a universal function: personal because we have a subjective aesthetic response to the ‘agreeable’, the ‘beautiful’, the ‘sublime’ and the ‘good’; but also there is a ‘universal’ aspect because our aesthetic response has a ’disinterested’ element. This brings under Kant’s spotlight, for example, the concept of beauty and the perception of beauty. Teleology, the idea that something has an end or purpose, is discussed in the second section. Here Kant, though not an atheist, questions, among other things, metaphysical proofs of God, including God as an intelligent designer. 

Translation of Critique of Judgement by James Creed Meredith.

Great Philosophic Treatise

Immanuel Kant was undoubtedly a very intelligent man. I find it quite amazing that men of his time period were endowed with such great intellectual insight.

This audiobook, read by Michael Lunts is yet another excellent production from Ukemi. Michael did a superb job reading the text, and the sound quality is outstanding - thank you Ukemi!

Our mankind's apriori judgement foundation is...

The real aesthetical faculty was remained to be in silence before this critic. Because faculty itself denied by non-generalized thought which under a ruling by dogmatic or skepticism. Kant, in here this book, investigates that the ultimate foundation of the faculty. Not only by brain, please read this by total sympathy to author. That leads you to a world of full of wonder.
