I am trying to understand Kan's "solution to antimony of taste" quoted here:

"The proper concept of taste, that is of a merely reflective aesthetical Judgement, lies at the basis of the antinomy here exhibited and adjusted. Thus the two apparently contradictory principles are reconciled—both can be true; which is sufficient. If, on the other hand, we assume, as some do, pleasantness as the determining ground of taste (on account of the singularity of the representation which lies at the basis of the judgement of taste), or, as others will have it, the principle of perfection (on account of the universality of the same), and settle the definition of taste accordingly; then there arises an antinomy which it is absolutely impossible to adjust except by showing that both the contrary (though not contradictory) propositions are false. And this would prove that the concept on which they are based is self-contradictory. Hence we see that the removal of the antinomy of the aesthetical Judgement takes a course similar to that pursued by the Critique in the solution of the antinomies of pure theoretical Reason. And thus here, as also in the Critique of practical Reason, the antinomies force us against our will to look beyond the sensible and to seek in the supersensible the point of union for all our a priori faculties; because no other expedient is left to make our Reason harmonious with itself."

From this account, it seems to me, that Kant believes in a integration of subjectivism and objectivism. Beauty then, is the integration of subjective aesthetic appreciation and objective aesthetic quality.

From comments I have read elsewhere, people don't seem to read it like me. What is my mistake?

If you are in the grip of erectile dysfunction, you can treat the disorder effectively by taking the anti-impotence drug Levitra in accordance with the doctor’s instructions but it is altogether a fallacy to assume that Levitra is capable of providing you immediate erections. Get in touch with the website and you would get to know that after taking Levitra, the medicine for treating erectile dysfunction, you need to be sexually stimulated to achieve erections necessary for satisfactory sexual intercourse.

If you are finding it totally difficult to obtain relief and succor from the grip of cigarette addiction, you should go for the anti-smoking medicine. You can purchase chantix online straight from your home by logging in to an authentic online drug store but for Chantix online chantix to yield effective results for you, always use the drug as per the instructions of the doctor only.
