|Judgment: the use of the concept „judgment“ is not uniform. If the judgment is interpreted as the determination of the truth value ("true" or "false") of a statement, this is indicated explicitly, e.g. with the judgment stroke I- introduced by G. Frege. See also truth value, judgment stroke, sentence, statement, utterance, assertion._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Judgment/McDowellVsEvans: but the judgment does not introduce a new kind of content! It simply confirms the conceptual content that comes from experience!
Justification/McDowell: justification does not have to consist in one derivation step from one content to another. A typical perception judgment makes a selection, from a richer content provided by the experience.
McD I 74
Evans/McDowell: important: Evans says that experiences are states of the information system, but he does not say that the idea of experience is identical with the idea of the information system.
The states of the information system with its non-conceptual content (for example, of animals) are not ipso facto states of a conscious subject.
McD I 84
Judgment/Evans: Evans thinks that view and concept must be divided between experience and judgment.
