[Frem the Saturday RevlewJ
An aphorism has been for some time going
?bout the world-which, like most other
aphorisms, is palpably false, or, we should
rather say, palpably incomplete-asserting thc
impropriety of disputing about tastes. It has
of course a superficial plausibility, or it would
not have attained so extensive a currency.
When one nerson says "I like my meat half
xaw," anti another says "I like mine
roasted to a rag." there is apparently no fur?
ther room for argument. Each controversial?
ist relies upon the testimony of his own palate,
and of that testimony no one, by the necessity
of the case, can be a snfflcient judge except
himself. Yet the doctrine inferred is in open
conflict with our dally experience. Civilized
beings are, as a rule, rather unwilling to talk
at great length about such strictly sensual
Pleasures as those of eating and drinking,
'et in certain places where the instincts of
the male animal are not kept in check by thc
refining Influence of feminine society-such,
for example, as regimental messes, college
halls, and club coffee-rooms-lhere are few
top 38 dlcassed with more eagerness than the
inuits of wines and cookery. According to
the popular doctrine such discussions ought
to como to a speedy termination. When
one man has confessed that he like*
public-house port, black and sweet and
strong and capable of producing intoxication
at a minimum of time and expenditure, and
another has asserted his possession of more re?
fined tastes, there should be no more to be
said. The final appeal has been made, aid
there is no way of bringing the question again
again Into couru Experience, however, shows
that few men, even of most undoubted moral
courage, will dare to make such an assertion
aa we have just mentioned. Host men would
be far moro willing to admit that they were re?
ligions or political heretics than to confess to
a perverted taste in regard to wine, and would
be almost as willing to admit that they wore
inclined to some moral depravity. It is a fact,
therefore, that even in such matters-where,
as one might have thought, the Influence of au?
thority would be reduced to a miaimum, and
the competence of each man's own conscious?
ness unreservedly admitted-there is a body of
accepted doctrine, and that there are as great
varieties of skill and Judgment as in questions
which bj common consent are capable of be?
ing brought to some decisive test. In fact, we
might with some degree of plausibility reverse
the ordinary doctrine. We might say that
matters of taste are precisely those on which
?ny amount of discussion may fairly take
place. There is not much use In nrgnlDg a
mathematical question; because one man is
absolutely right and another is absolutely
wrong, and the decision between them must
depena not, properly speaking, upon argu?
ment, but upon unravelling some confusion of
ideas. But where taste is In some way in?
volved, there is always room lor comparing a
great variety Of views, and for taming a sub
. feet about in different lights until its true bear?
ings become evident.
' Thc logic of the question k? worth a little ex?
amination, because it applies to matters of
Auch more importance than those in whisk
the sente of taste, In its li'"c~ai acceptation, ls
principally concerned, in most discussions
_?boutart,"for example, we are met by asimi?
lar perplexity. One raau hites Raffaello, ano?
ther has a distinct preference for Hogarth; ls lt
a matter of right br wrong, or is lt a perfectly
open question, to be settled ultimately by
counting heads? Most people would revolt
from tho last conclusion, and yet they have a
certain difficulty in seeing their way to the
first. We may talk about the eternal and im?
mutable principles of thc beautiful, and de?
clare that a failure to perceive them indicates
sheer stupidity and bluntness of the percep?
tive faculties. But then the difficulty occurs
which presents Itself in discussions about
morality. The assertion that certain princi?
ples are everlas* ingly true is very convenient,
and would savj much trouble If lt were ac?
cepted. Bat does it mean more than that thc
man who 'mrdtes the assertion is right, and
that his adversary ls wrong ? When we apply
lt to questions, if there are any such questions,
on which wc arc all agreed, it is superlluotts.
When we apply it to disputed questions, t he
very fact that there Isa dispute ls a sufficient
answer. We are all agreed that it is wrong to
commit murder, and therefore, for practical
purposes, it does not much matter whether we
know that lt is wrong by a direct intuition or
by a process of observation and reasoning. But
when we come to a more doubtful point, such
as the comparative merits of an ascetic or a
utilitarian sohool of morality, our lnluitlous do
not help us out, because they appear to tell in
opposite directions. This ls the case tn most
mattera et art; on? man'? consciousne?* teil?
him that a certain picture ls beautiful, and
another man's that it Is ugly; which is right,
and who is to be the judge ? There is not
even a claimant to infallibility upon such mat
tors, and apparently we are landed in n hope?
less and diametrical contradiction of opinion.
Yet, If we give up these everlasting and intui?
tive principles, we apparently come to thc
equally awkward conclusion that every mau is
his own Pope, or, In ether words, that there is
no right er wrong In the matter. 1 kc admirer
of Mozart is en the same level with the admir?
er of the popular melodies ol'the music halls,
and all that can be said is that anything which
pleases anybody is so tar good, and thc more
people lt pleases th? .better. We have at best
?he old doctrine of the greatest happiness of
the greatest number, which would apparently
sanction any ort, however vulgar and offensive
the most cultivated people may conceive it to
be, simply on the ground of its popularity.
The escape from this ilLemma ls, however,
tolerably plain, and it may clear up the argu?
ment as tho real meaning of thu aphorism
about tastes. Let us take, for example; the
case in which individual taste appears to have
the most indisputable supremacy. One man,
to take our original illustration, likes his meat
underdone, whilst another prefers that it should
be roasted to the verge ot burning. Is it Im
eissiblc to ger.behind these simple assertions !
ust we reur.in forever in a state o? absolute
indecision, and admit that thc Greenlandcr
who likis to bolt large gobbets of taw blubber
ls as good a judge os thc most refined ol' Pari
alaa artists? In one sense, of course, there is
nothing shocking about this conclusion. (Jae
thlng may be suitable to a savage within hail
of the North Pole, and quite a different thing
to a gentleman who boasts that he is at thc fo?
cus of modern civilization. But if the Parisian
were suddenly to take to raw blubber, we
should pronounce him to be wrong with os
much confidence as If he were to declare that
he would give up washing, or to proclaim the
propriety of infanticide. On what grounds,
then,should wc be entitled to base our decision,
aid will they help us In determining more
delicate questions, suchjas the exact number
of minutes during which a given piece of meat
should be exposed to the tiru ? Thu most ob
vioas condition is ??ik? we should prefer that
taste which ls most conducive to health. A
Entlcman who should take to gorging blub
r in modern Paris would speedily become
offensive both to hlmseir and others, though
he might be an ornament to Esquimaux socie?
ty. This, however, takes us but a very littlu
way. The controversies which actually occur
require afar more delicate test for their satis?
factory decision. We may say that nobody
should drink enough champagne to interfere
with his digestive faculties, but that will not
enable us to decide whether the lover ul sweet
orordry champagne ls on thc whole In the right.
The next remark, therefore, must be that, with
certain qualifications, the man who has the
greatest powers of discrimination deserves the
greatest respect In practice there is so much
Imposition in such matters that it Is hard to
decide accurately between thu claims of rival
lodges; but we may assume that liiere is in
l .'t an enormous difference between thu deli?
cacy of different palates; and that whereas 1
some beings in human form-are unable to dis- i
tinguish between port of 13:10 aud ol' ISM), i
there ore others who rival Saucho Panza's
uncles, and could detect the taste of leather
and Iron from the key and thong which had
been dropped into thu cask some years previ?
ously. It must be admitted that, asa rule thu ,
judgment of the man who lias the most delicate (
instrument for detecting infinitesimal varia?
tions of flavor should receive the gr?ntest
?weight, as we should think most ot thu musi?
cian who had the finest ear for minute varia?
tions of sound. The pleasure which can bu
derived from aay object of thu senses is gen
u,I ia Proportion to the acuteness with
which they can judge bf ifs'precise qualities;
to every increase in capacity there must cor?
respond an increased number of graf ideations,
though it may possibly be urged that in some -
coses a sense might be so morbidly acme as to i
GUSS rin lhan ^^^SS- I
yeloped at the expense of others The savage
for example, pays for the keenness of ids vS 11
ion by an obtuseness of the intellectual nod?
ers, and a man may become too ex?Sv?ha a
machine for detecting culinary qu?I and a
suffer a certain atrophy o' the rest ? l?
Bical, to say nothing ol his intellectual and ?Si ' c<
ral, faculties. We will not, however,Tirano
this investigation, which would require mat v
delicate qualifications of the argument Fur
there remains another consideration which ls
probably the most important. If wu imagine
?^dispute between two men of equal powers
of discrimination, LOW are we to reach
?.d?cision? Suppose that one of them pre?
fers a sweeter wine than his rival, u I c!
mS^mS^^r9- of JudSInS between them ? li
JThc difflculty ls undoubtedly great, and lt is on I ?
account of its greatness that different fashions
become prevalent at different timeB In an ap?
parently arbitrary manner. It is easier to de?
cide, that ls, in accordance with common prac?
tice - than to go profoundly into the merits of
the question. And perhaps in matters of eat
iag and drinking it 1B as well that a speedy de?
cision should be thus attainable. There is,
however, a principle applicable to the case,
when it ls worth seeking for an application.
There is a certain correlation between the
various faculties of men walsh may ultimately
bring what are apparently questions of mere
physical taste before a higner tribunal. A
savage, we may presume, likes his meat as
raw as possible; the meat undergoes a greater
change in proportion to the increase of civili?
zation; and we may therefore presume that
it should be modified so much as to avoid
shocking the delicacy generated by the
existing stage of refinement, and yet
not BO much as to destroy the variety
of flavor which a cultivated palate is
capable of appreciating. Or, take a more
definite example, there was a certain analogy,
and probably avery close one, between the
port wine which aided or obfuscated the legal
penetration of a past generation of Chancel?
lors and judges, and the thinner and more deli?
cate fluids in favor with their successors. The
obvious connection between national character
and national dishes is too obvious to be pointed
oat, and lt may bc assumed that a certain re?
action exists, so that by improving the British
beefsteak we might insensibly elevate the
British character. We admit that arguments
of this order are of difficult application, and
that there are wide limits of uncertainty with?
in which differences of individual taste may
fairly oscillate. But that only amounts to say?
ing that there are a great many dishes which
may be eaten or declined without moral turpi?
tude, and that there are many points on which
differences of taste and character may co-exist
with great advantage to the country.
Th? conclnsion, then, is that even in ques?
tions of eating and drinking careful observa?
tion would lead us to the opinion that they are
Intimately connected with various social
aud moral principles, and that there is conse?
quently abundant room for legitimate argu?
ment. AB a rule, in mattere of such refine?
ment, we have to judge rather by instinct than
by the coarser logical methods; yet the instinct
itself is not an ultimate fact, but, like moral
instincts, a matter for historical and scientific
inquiry. The disputes which may arise will
have to be decided In thc last resort by thc or?
dinary methods of inductive observation. Of
course we must finally come to certain axioms.
as in every kind ol scientific inquiry. What
they are, and how their validity ls to be estab?
lished, is a question for psychologists; but as a
matter of fact they are axioms in which every
oue believes, though why lie believes, and how
they bear upon uny given problem, may bo
matter for discussion. And further, what we
have said in reference to beefsteaks and wine
is equally applicable, with certain modifica?
tions, to paintings, music and poetry; (hough
we have preferred to take tho case In which
the supremacy cf Individual taste is at first
sight the most unquestionable.
