‘The peculiarity of this alternative mode of relating to the world is that the individual must both judge for herself and, simultaneously, call on the judgement of others.  The context or horizon of taste is always already sociable. not in the sense that we already agree about what is beautiful, but in that it is part of my considering something beautiful that `i care what you think about it’. Agreement may be what I aim for, but in no sense can
it be guaranteed in advance. Kant will return to this tension within the dynamic of taste, but never explicitly explores what we could call the pathos of aesthetic judging.’
