Long has the idea of a standard for how we perceive our existence as moral stood as a reminder of the differences in mans opinions. Yet there exists, and must exist a basis for what we consider moral and true. There must be some process, biologically pre-determined or societally created that allows us to separate what is praised and holds up to the test of time, from what we condemn and becomes subsequently forgotten. Even so, is the mind of every man meant to be the same, only differing in the instance of physical decline, or are we by design created to have differing opinions further obscuring what could be considered an objective standard from which we judge our opinions? In Of the Standard of Taste Hume presents a series of small discussions that help not only show what a general encompassing opinion could be, but as a result proves that it must have a form of existence albeit broad and loosely defined.
