The project of the Critique of the Aesthetic Power of Judgment consists in providing a ground for judgments of taste so that we are justified in claiming that everybody else can agree with our judgment (‘subjective universality’) and that all others ought to agree with us (‘subjective necessity,’ normativity). This justification is supposed to be accomplished in the “Deduction of judgments of taste.” The section that carries this title (§38) is surprisingly short and for this and various other reasons (some of them textual) commentators have often wondered about the precise location where Kant provides the deduction, whether it is really contained in that short paragraph or whether the argument might actually extend beyond §38. In my thesis, I want to reinvigorate the discussion about the location of the deduction and its interpretation by arguing that it takes place between §30-42.
