As it doesnt intend to know any object, the universality of judgement of taste doesnt have an objective principle. However, to assure its necessity and to escape from contingency of experience, this universality supports itself on the exemplar principle of common sense (Gemeinsinn), that is, on the subjective principle that knows only through the feeling, and not through the concept of what is pleasure or not. Nevertless, the necessity in this judgement, under the presupposition of the universal agreement as regards whats beautiful, it acquires one objective representation based on fundament of our feeling. This project intents to examine the raison of Kants concern in set up one universality of tastes judgement in spite of being a subjective judgement, singular and not interested, even so it demands an universality. For that, we will use as basic tests the Critique of judgement and the Critique of pure raison, and also always our investigation needs, well look for another references of Kant and authorized commentators toward this subject.
