Therefore objective validity and necessary universality (for everybody) are equivalent terms, and though we do not know the object in itself, yet when we consider a judgment as universal, and also necessary, we understand it to have objective validity.

                         --Immanuel Kant, Prolegomen To Any Future
                            Metaphysics
, Section 19.

Tragedy, therefore, is imitation of worthy and complete action having magnitude, in speech made pleasing with each form [of pleasing ornamentation]used separately in the parts of tragedy, performed and not produced through narration, achieving through pity and fear a catharsis of such affections.

                        --Sam Aristotle,The Poetics, Section 6.
