The first part of this book, proving the minimalist state, is painstaking but rational.

While the book is rife with interesting and challenging theories that deserve careful consideration, it also suffers from Nozick’s frustratingly abstruse writing style. Treating us with respect by respecting our rights, it allows us, individually or with whom we choose, to choose our life and to realize our ends and our conception of ourselves, insofar as we can, aided by the voluntary cooperation of other individuals possessing the s The minimal state treats us as inviolate individuals, who may not be used in certain ways by others as means or tools or instruments or resources; it treats us as persons having individual rights with the dignity this constitutes.

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. Philosophically the strongest part of the book is probably his critique of Rawls pt.

It is dry, calculated and amazingly well argued. Very thought provoking book.

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

You get the feeling that he wants to come back and look at this. Though still not having the vote, you are at liberty and are given the right to enter into discussion of the 10, to try to persuade them to adopt various policies and to treat you and themselves in a certain way. In fact the entire method he uses to build his argument is pretty obviously, and glaringly, flawed. His work includes many of the arguments I’ve considered over the years the possibiliy of private owners trapping someone by surrounding them; the implications taught in micro about compensating someone for their cost, while not realizing that provides additional indifference curve options.


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. But dear God, it made my head hurt.

In doing so, it is frequently frustrating, as the author will discuss at length rather tertiary points while responding to significant criticisms with an arcane foray into pseudo-economics. I wish more libertarians would actually read this book and acknowledge that this is not a road map for policy making or even directly transferable to a non-hypothetical world.

Jun 10, Alex rated it liked it Shelves: Trivia About Anarchy, State, a The end result of this system is the one which unabashedly states that Money is Power. His book is by no means terrible, but it was a major disappointment to me.

Fairness is only possible because there are things that are unfair to begin with. Jan 24, Mark rated it liked it. The Lockean proviso of not making others worse off by appropriation and transfer can justify limiting property rights and offer compensation though.

Anarquia, Estado y Utopia : Robert Nozick :

If a compulsory distribution scheme is the most important, why would a state permit this emigration? He often use This book has been on my reading list for a while and I finally got around to reading it this summer.

He just loves to fool around with various ideas. This is a position between consequentialism and deontology. 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 anaruia with one another.


And very often this reads like the rantings of a madman. In important book in libertarian theory. 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. Besides Nozick’s position at Harvard, I have no idea why this book is presented as THE book promulgating the position of libertarianism. So it’s a bit of a natural monopoly locally and it’s not something too distasteful.

But again to be fair, “fixing the baseline” is one area Nozick says needs more work.

One of the very few philosophy books I ever had a hard time putting down. Nov 09, Daniel Hageman rated it really liked it Shelves: Suppose we run the math, we maximise “utility” anwrquia “happiness” or whatever, according to our favorite pattern. As a preliminary rationalization of this review, it must be made explicit that this is also a critique.

It’s right there on the very first pages. Lets suppose that only one team market has enough money to pay him and players like him and they are so good that this team always wins.

Of course this has always been utppia main criticism of Social Contract theory, and the rejoinder is as old as that theory itself: If you allowed his victim to set the price, on the other anarquiq, they could break the system by charging too high, and then you can just as well abandon your project.

Robert Nozick is at his best as a critic, and the best part of this book is the critical part.
