Platonic judgment.

The difference between good and bad art is sensible: visual, audible, tactile. The difference between thought and unthought is invisible, unheard, untouchable: in a word, intelligible. Therefore you don’t have to be able to make art in order to judge it (though you must have taste), but you do have to know how to think in order to judge thought (no matter what your tastes).
