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.

Rorty VI 212
Judgment/RortyVsMcDowell: he writes as if the world would do us a favor if it did not constrict us.
       He does not believe that trees and stones are talking, but he believes that they do not just make us make judgments. He conceives of a phenomenon as an invitation for a judgment which proceeds from the world. It is not a judgment itself, but has the conceptual form of a judgment.
       According to McDowell, "impressions" are neither physiological states, nor the non-inferent beliefs themselves, but something between these two: a component of the "Second Nature."
