Quote from ‘A Syllabus of Certain Topics of Logic’
Normative science has three widely separated divisions: i. Esthetics; ii. Ethics; iii. Logic.
Esthetics is the science of ideals, or of that which is objectively admirable without any ulterior reason. I am not well acquainted with this science; but it ought to repose on phenomenology.
