This chapter discusses disagreement about matters of taste. It contends that these disputes are best explained by saying that what is at stake in them is the self-attribution of certain properties and that resolution of the disputes amounts to the parties making the same self-attributions. It argues that this account explains a special sort of defectiveness to which disputes about taste are subject.
