And it is always possible – using the sorts of maneuvers typified by Goodman’s grue and Kripke’s quus – to come up with any number of features held in common by a finite group of objects, so that any finite sample can be regarded as exemplifying any number of nonstandard kinds.

This second sense of “universal” is unlike the first in that it alludes not to a plurality of objects, but rather to a plurality of subjects. ’ I want to suggest that when Kant speaks of judgment as “thinking the particular as contained under the universal,” he has the second as well as the first sense of universality in mind. “Thinking the particular under the universal” means not only thinking of an object as having a feature shared in common with a multiplicity of other objects, but also thinking of one’s own particular response to an object as universal or universally valid, as one does in a judgment of taste.

For as Kant makes clear in the Analytic of the Critique of Pure Reason, experience involves not just the reception of representations in sensibility, but an activity of imagination, called synthesis, through which the manifold of sensible impressions is given order and unity. Experience, understood as the product of this activity, still consists in intuitions – that is, of singular representations – but these intuitions are structured or synthesized by the imagination in a way that allows for the representation of generality.
