Tbis inquiry might be regarded as a sequel to The thoughts of price and as an extension of the short core-vocabulary of aesthetic suggestions present in one of many appendices to it. by way of sheer numbers, lots of the price thoughts of our language are to be present in the world of human family and of the classy. There also are different price vocabularies, shorter yet both very important, for instance, the cognitive and logical. those and different items of pbilosopbical research (for instance, the query of "other minds") deserve the type of empirical survey that has been made from ethical and aesthetic notions, if simply to check a priori methods to them. within the current studyan much more decided empirical procedure than that followed for the 1st has been stumbled on worthy. as soon as the ethical or human worth vocabulary has been pointed out, sentential contexts for using the phrases simply are evoked. In a examine of the language of feedback, although, the vocabulary has first to be sought within the utterances of critics themselves and quoted in enough context to make their severe intentions transparent. the result is that the current research is of serious size, approximately half it being quotations from critics. the rule of thumb followed for arriving at tbis size pass on accumulating quotations so long as new varieties of appraisal got here used to be to to light.
