||Brentano defends a highly unusual account of judgment in
Brentano 1874. On this account, all propositions are reducible to
existential propositions, and accordingly all judgments are existential. In fact, it has been argued that for Brentano judgment is not really a relation to
a proposition, but to a worldly individual thing. This has important implications for logic, and for Brentano's account of truth - both topics also covered in this leaf category. It is important to note that Brentano uses the term "judgment" very widely, to cover every mental state with a mind-to-world direction of fit, including perceptual states. However, his account of what makes a mental state a judgment is not in terms of anything like a direction of fit.
