Taste as a socio-cultural, aesthetic, sociological, economic, and anthropological concept implies distinguishing, evaluating and judging, and also establishes boundaries between styles. Judging what is good or bad taste is about drawing distinctions, and in the philosophical aesthetic tradition it pertains to a universal attitude which is impossible to prove and which takes for granted the existence of a sensus communis, or common understanding. For Kant, "the judgement of taste is not founded on concepts, and is in no way a cognition, but only an aesthetic judgement" (Critique of Judgement).
