Objective vs subjective ground for judgment

When people say, "how you see the world is subjective," they mean "how you see the world depends on your experiences." This statement is about the basis or cause of a judgement/belief and not about the judgment itself nor what the judgment is about.

There are many other ways to have ethical beliefs:

  • Some judgments/beliefs are grounded in testimony. E.g. if my friend tells me it's raining outside. I believe it even though I didn't experience it.
  • Other judgments/beliefs are grounded in other things, such as empirical evidence.

Our experiences only inform our judgments, for better or worse.
