Would this quote by Hume be normative or descriptive?

All sentiment is right; because sentiment has a reference to nothing beyond itself, and is always real, wherever a man is conscious of it.

  • Welcome to Philosophy.SE. It is good practice to provide references when quoting. That being said - what do you think is the right answer and why? Or: I presume you have working definitions of normative and descriptive; which part do you not understand that makes that you cannot apply them in this case? – Keelan Nov 8 '16 at 12:15
