Precursors of these principles had been employed by Kant and others in empirical psychology. But how can such principles of empirical.

As a senior citizen, I have taken philosophy courses every quarter in the adult education program of a top-ranked college for the last 3 years and had previously studied the Critique of Pure Reason. I have an excellent instructor and bright classmates. Kant, however, can be difficult to understand, and grasping his overall system and particular terminology has not been easy. While this Critique is much easier going than that of Pure Reason, I found Douglas Burnham's book to be an invaluable review of the first Critique, and a great assistance in comprehending points that I often miss on first reading Kant's text. It is well written for students at my level.

Still, there is one phrase on p. 111 that puzzled me:
"If fine art were merely a matter of taste, then the concept of a purpose that makes the production possible as art would be exceeded, but not encompassed. The beauty and the purpose would be irrelevant to each other."
On p. 113, Burnham writes that a "concept of a purpose" is "what kind of thing the object is meant to be (the idea of genre)." Simple good taste would include, exceed this concept and have a modest form of beauty. But mere taste would not encompass the supplementary purpose, the "aesthetic idea" ("a presentation of the imagination") that makes a real work of art (with genius).
