There’s a couple ways to decide if property utopi justly distributed: This is very much an analytical work in style and content, discovering the implications and internal contradictions of various ethical, legal and political positions with logical rigor While being far from right-libertarian myself, I found this work to have value nevertheless.

This book has t on my reading list for a while and I finally got around to reading it this summer. Some may seem radical and unpalatable for readers of other political persuasions, but any reader who is open to new ideas should find the reading highly interesting. Nozick died in after a prolonged struggle with cancer. No subgroup of a utopian world is better off to emigrate to its own smaller world. Every page has at least a dozen logical errors or horrible philosophical mistakes.

If you want to attempt it, I think it is worth your time. But once–very quickly–all the resources are initially acquired as property, it sets the stage for generations of inequality and quite likely relations of domination and oppression anaquia the unpropertied classes by the propertied classes. The function of ethics is ansrquia to create and stabilize such empty cores of mutually beneficial cooperation.

He did additional but less influential work in such subjects as decision theory and epistemology. Rather, he Much is said already about this book, so I’ll try to be brief.

That type of deal. While I found myself in disagreement with many of the conclusions Nozick came to, the piece as a whole was incredibly well thought out and researched.

Tricky, difficult, but fun. So there you have it, I fully admit that whole sections of this book went over my head. Likewise, Nozick acknowledges from the get-go that a strong version of his theory jozick applies if in the actual history of a given society property was justly acquired.

He does present some valuable arguments against utilitarianism as well as some interesting thought experiments including the infamous “experience machine. But this is never the case in actual history. This coercively enforceable aspect ideally has an empty core in the game theorists’ sense: One of the more interesting discussions in this part concerns the right of individuals to leave a state that they find too compulsory.


Ulti This is a book that forwards some pretty striking arguments. We may also do it if we find this procedure unreliable or unfair after considering the information given.

I kept reminding myself of this every time I had to re-read a paragraph for the nozicl time before giving up on understanding it.

This article needs additional citations for verification. He starts the book in “mid-stream” by just making some flat assumptions. Nozick offers up his philosophy with a playful, honest, and generous spirit that is really remarkable.

Wilt Chamberlain is an extremely popular basketball player in this society, and Nozick further assumes 1 million people are willing to freely give Chamberlain 25 cents each to watch him play basketball over the course of a season we assume no other transactions occur. Open Preview See a Problem?

The worlds in Nozick’s meta-utopia have empty cores. He rose to eminence in the last quarter of the twentieth century as a creative philosopher who has expressed philosophical truths beyond the reach of analytic argumentation. These assumptions, it turns out, are rather controversial, so that shadows his subsequent results. There is a great dispersal of shares such that almost everybody is deciding about everybody else.

Nozick concludes that “Marxian exploitation is the exploitation of people’s lack of understanding of economics. If this is done with the consent of the individual concerned, no problem arises. Nozick arrives at the night-watchman state of classical liberalism theory by showing that there are non-redistributive reasons for the apparently redistributive procedure of making its clients pay for the protection of others.

Some may s This book is one of the most unusual in the history of political philosophy, and perhaps one of most brilliant. Assuming that non-members take reasonable precautions and adjusting activities to the association’s prohibition of their enforcing their own rights, the association is required to raise the non-member above his actual position by an amount equal to the difference between his position on an indifference curve he would occupy were it not for the prohibition, and his original position.

This side-constraint view reflects the underlying Kantian principle that individuals are ends and not merely means, so the rights of one individual cannot be violated to avoid violations of the rights of other people. And this would be lonely and impractical, so some compromise must result.


Prior to beginning the reading of Anarchy, State, and Utopiaa look at the circumstances — both political and social — that Robert Nozick was writing in could go towards endeavoring to understand the intent behind the text.

Nozick proves through moral logic including plenty of propositions and equations that the minimal libertarian state is the single desirable and natural end-state, that anything beyond that is immoral, and that the only utopian option suitable for diverse mankind, is only possible based on this state.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Whilst I disagree with pretty much everything argued by the author, it is one of the most important books in present-day political philosophy and a good starting-point for seeking to understand the mindset of libertarians, one of the most destructive philosophies in history.

This inequality restricts movement based on the ground rules Nozick has implemented, which could lead to feudalism and slavery, a society which Nozick himself would reject. He sketches an entitlement theory, which states, “From each as they choose, to each as they are chosen”. This, however, is not all that is discussed, or important, about the book. In a world premised on the most complete interdependence of individuals, can a theory which derives society from a starting point of more-or-less isolated individuals continue to hold relevance for our future whatever it may tell us of our past?

I think Nozick became famous for the anarchy section, which gave his fellow philosophers a lot to argue about. Nozick then briefly considers Locke’s theory of acquisition.

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. This goes against our experience with states, where even tourists typically receive protection. Nozick’s opinions on historical entitlement ensures that he naturally rejects the Original Position since he argues that in the Original Position individuals will use an end-state principle to determine the outcome, whilst he explicitly states the importance of the historicity of any such decisions for example punishments and penalties will require historical information.
