We applaud particular works of art for their profundity and subtlety, the insights they offer, or the way they cause us to view things differently, and we believe these qualities are relevant to the arts.
We judge other works to be artistically faulty due to their shallowness, superficiality, or sentimentality. These are judgments of the arts that appear to also be or to rely on judgments of cognition.
Such aspects of how we evaluate art are taken seriously by aesthetic cognitivism.
