(p.103) Chapter 5 Moral Perception, Aesthetic Perception, and Intuitive Judgment
Moral Perception

Robert Audi

Princeton University Press

This chapter provides a comparison between moral and aesthetic knowledge and other aspects of the similarity between moral and aesthetic cognition. The connections between aesthetics and ethics are especially important for understanding moral perception and moral intuition. There is aesthetic perception, as opposed to mere perception of an aesthetic object, just as there is moral perception, as opposed to mere perception of a moral phenomenon. One may also find aesthetic disagreements that, even more than moral disagreements, challenge the view that normative domains have objective standards. The chapter shows how singular moral knowledge is like singular aesthetic knowledge in resting on a response to properties which ground the truth of the normative propositions known.

Keywords:   aesthetics, ethics, moral knowledge, aesthetic knowledge, aesthetic perception, moral perception, aesthetic disagreements, normative propositions
