Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

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 hyphen, sentence, statement, utterance, assertion.

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.

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.

I 74
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. (McDowellVsEvans).
