But there are several problems with this work.
Jul 07, Christopher Roberts rated it it was ok Shelves: Return to Book Page. I realize that Nozick doesn’t believe there ever was such a state of nature as he describes, and that there is nonetheless value in exploring the consequences of how roughly equal, purely rational, atomistic individuals with no histories or attachments might engage strategically with one another.
Anarchy, State, and Utopia by Robert Nozick
If there was a source any given source no doubt it would most likely be arbitrary in its absoluteness. As a preliminary rationalization of this review, it must be made explicit that this is also a critique. His reception in the libertarian movement was at best lukewarm. We tax someone’s earnings, but not their leisure. It may be once upon a time I could understand this with ease, even stay awake.
First, in his hypothetical state of nature, where are these private businesses supposed to come from? While being far from right-libertarian myself, I found this work to have value nevertheless. I can’t believe this absurd book is the bible of the libertarian right. And of course long periods of dependence, especially childhood, are a defining characteristic of humanity.
If there was a source then we wouldn’t have to worry about fairness at all. But what about CEOs or presidents? And yes, reading this over a few times in isolation, I do get more than a glimmer, but it’s not as if the plus pages this goes with is much more engaging.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. So if you are some type of anarchist who does not like it, you don’t have to join and you and your fellow anarchists obviously can’t expect it to look after you but if you’re just some guy who does not have hangups like that and there’s a choice of protection agencies you will naturally go for the one that’s most effective in the area where you live. The political philosophy of libertarianism finds its best apology here, but the contents of the book, and the method of presentation will and has found application to other political philosophies, and to legal philosophy.
In the eventuality that they divide evenly on some issue, 5, for and 5, against, they look at your ballot and count it in. When an amount A in addition to f H is expended in self-defense, the punishment which later may be inflicted is reduced by that amount and becomes r X H – A.
I think Nozick became famous for the anarchy section, which gave his fellow philosophers a lot to argue about. The theory of the fair price is hard enough for voluntary exchanges, and there, you at least have the custom with regards to that price and the production costs of the producer as guidelines.
He was well read. I don’t see why it wouldn’t. Yet, I finished it and found that I really enjoyed his writing and philosophical discussions, as both challenged my convictions and ideas of justice and responsibility. In the first chapter, the author asks the reader to consider what he calls the “state-of-nature theory”.
Anarchy, State, and Utopia
Nozjck book is oddly constructed, focusing on tearing down all other points of view rather than constructing and elaborating upon Nozick’s view of libertarianism. After that things get bad.
This is a book that forwards some pretty striking arguments. Lists with This Book. So there will be fees instead of taxes. Nozick is never afraid of nozici flaws in his own illustrations often developing extensive counter-arguments but sometimes passing over further analysis and suggesting they be used as further research topics. Nozick begins with a thought experiment involving a Lockean state of nature—one composed of morally decent people who recognize and for the most part respect absolute natural rights of life, liberty, and property.
Then again, it’s a philosophy book, and nobody obliged me to read it. It is similar to corporations competing with, or buying out, each other. The author then builds on this in an attempt to justify from a moral perspective “the minimal state”. The third part of the book aptly titled ‘Utopia’ I found somewhat too speculative.
The second is about the implications of the state and arguments for expanded powers beyond minimalist especially Rawl’s theory of Justice. Granted, I’m not particularly well-versed in these areas of political philosophy.
This is for good reason. Any other goods or services should be provided by private actions business or donationsand any redistribution of wealth ASU is a classic work of political philosophy and is widely considered to be the definitive text defending libertarian political theory, which claims that the only justifiable form of political society is one with minimal government and laissez-faire economic system.
Nozick shows that this necessarily involves an end-state or a patterned view of the distribution of property in a society. Nozick and Ayn Rand are the only ones I know who didn’t seem to care much about educating their readers on economics, despite the fact that both seem to have read a lot on the subject.
While the conclusions are mostly that which I cannot get on board with, as they rely quite heavily on a deontological foundation, many of the points made regarding rights, distributive justice, and the morality of compensation were all quite unique. Then a bunch of sports fans voluntarily pay to see Wilt Chamberlain play. He also retains the power to recall them to the plantation if some emergency threatens his land; and to raise or lower the three-sevenths amount required to be turned over to him.

Takes him more than pages to prove the statements I’m repeating potentially mangling here, but that’s the gist of it. And again, game-theoretic analysis comes into play, although not from a rigorous mathematical standpoint.
So let a thousand flowers bloom, basically. But I was disappointed that he didn’t discuss sufficiency threshold distributions that one might maintain with, say, a universal basic income he does briefly mention this in a footnote in the section on the Lockean proviso, only to quickly dismiss the idea. Except the author himself freely admits that his lists of special cases are almost never exhaustive. Besides Nozick’s position at Harvard, I have no idea why this book is presented as THE book promulgating the position of libertarianism.
He was educated at Columbia A.
