    Abstract:
    Judgment has two functions therefore: determining and reflecting. Determining involves finding the right 'universal', that is concept or word for the situation at hand. Thus this function covers the choice of rule or aesthetic, that is, the metric of measurement. Reflective judgment is particularly relevant to the related activities of aesthetic choice and purposeful behaviour. It is the source of what Kant calls 'empirical concepts', that is, for my purposes, the range of aesthetic rules or metrics that one has at one's disposal. Kant's ideas about beauty, although stimulating for my purposes, are not directly relevant to the issues of measurement. But his concept of the Sublime is. \"The experience of the sublime consists in a feeling of the superiority of our own power of reason, as a supersensible faculty, over nature.\" The specific category of the 'mathematically sublime' appears especially important for empirical measurement.
