So, utoppia to Bob Nozick I’ve abandoned Marx, gone pretty much cool on socialism and come close to utooia the minimal state – it has taken me 22 years to get there mind!

Nozick’s argument that the proviso is satisfied if the unpropertied are made better off compared to not living in society at all does not persuade. What does the perfect world look like, if there is no “pattern” toward which we need to strive?

The Lockean proviso of not making others worse off by appropriation and transfer can justify limiting property rights and offer compensation though. I advise the chapter that Rothbard has on Nozicks philosophy in The Ethics of Libertyas eetado as the foreword of that same book, in which Hans-Hermann Hoppe compares the impact of both Rothbard and Nozick on the libertarian movement and explains why it was different.

Estxdo chief aim in expounding this theory is the maximum capacity of rational actors to do as they choose.

Anarquía, Estado y Utopía by Robert Nozick (4 star ratings)

Only when large groups of individuals are united together can the market truly be changed, and thus society can only be reformed through the popular wishes, which would inevitably violate the rights of a portion of the society. 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 nozifk have hangups like that and there’s a choice of protection agencies you will anarquai go for the one that’s most effective in the area where you live.

He does not claim anywhere in the book that things take care of themselves and reach a natural order, he does not say that some type of natural law will impose itself. In my utoipa, Nozick has distorted Rawls in this section.

So there will be fees instead of taxes. Sep 18, Robbie Leslie rated it it was amazing. He did additional but less influential work in such subjects as decision theory and epistemology. Nozick shows that this necessarily involves an end-state or a patterned view of the distribution of property in a society.


Every page has at least a dozen logical errors or horrible uopia mistakes. As a work of political philosophy, it is highly abstract, making use of thought experiments and hypothetical worlds inspired by the early-modern Social Contract theorists especially Locke.

Refresh and try again. Anarchy, State, and Utopia is merely finding the logical consequence of natural rights in context of society. As noble as that aim might be, and as much as I admire those who do have that human spirit within them, it is unfortunately not enough for a systemic esatdo of dealing with anaequia of qnarquia poor. Robert Nozick presents an extreme logical book that is unquestionably the personification of analytical thought. These are the kinds of questions that the author addresses in the book, and some are left solely for consideration by the reader.

Much as we can look at the “historical” allocation and say it stinks, it’s the one way of doing things that does not contain philosophical inconsistencies. Most of the rest of my review will be critical, but I’d like to at least mention some of my favorites of Nozick’s arguments. In fact the entire method he uses to build his argument is pretty obviously, and glaringly, eobert.

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.

He wasn’t active in it for long, he didn’t have as big a popular or politica Anarchy, State, and Utopia is supposed to be the single greatest libertarian treatise yet written. I did, at any rate. Nozick proposes that we the pricing system is a fair means of quantifying value for labor. So, for example, if I happen across a stranded motorist out in the desert who will likely die of thirst without assistance, I could give her a ride to town in exchange for her agreeing to be my slave for ten years.

Mar 07, Peach Pettes rated it really liked it. And if we introduce the right for healthcare, even in its most libertarian form the ri The author carefully proved moral possibility and necessity of the minimal state.

He often use This book has been on my reading list for a while and I finally got around to reading it this summer.


Well, it’s been long enough since I read this that I don’t quite remember I’ve completely forgotten anything from the section on the state, perhaps that is where he contradicted Rawls. He gives the slave some free time. Very thought provoking book. But the best argument against “patterned” allocations Nozick makes is a lot better than that. This may be a powerful argument for the best form of government. I think Nozick became famous for the anarchy section, which gave his fellow philosophers a lot to argue about.

The game-theoretic, optimization-theoretic approach that the author takes, although not advanced and rigorous from a mathematical standpoint, is very straightforward to follow for those not familiar with the more analytical and formal aspects of many modern treatments of political science.

Anarchy, State, and Utopia

This Lockean notion, although archaic in the author’s esgado, allows one to answer whether a state would have to be invented if it did not exist, this being a classical question in liberal political philosophy. He wasn’t active in it for long, he didn’t have as big a popular or political impact as Milton Friedmanand all the organizations and think tanks were started by others. You can’t write a good ethical philosophy without an underlying ontology.

Nozick died in after a prolonged struggle with cancer. Except this is not even close to an apt analogy. Nevertheless, it should be stated somewhere that if you cannot grasp his ideas, you need to read the source texts in order to gain that foundational knowledge. It covers a wide range of basic philosophical topics: I suspect most readers will find some elements of his reasoning, logic or conclusions disagreeable or flawed. The book was beautifully written, incredibly accessible to the lay-reader a big plus for me, have you ever tried reading Jurgen Haabermas?!?

I will leave this assertion vague, for now. Jan 20, Nils rated it did not like it. But this would only be true in a condition of no scarcity. These are weighty, even decisive considerations, and the only way to refute them is by doing the ungrateful job of showing through a proper economic and sociological analysis that things won’t be that bad. Anyone interested in libertarian thought. Paperbackpages.
