Abstract

This article analyzes the philosophy of Robert Nozick. It describes how Nozick borrowed Rawls's foundation, accepting his premise about the separateness and inviolability of persons. It then discusses Nozick's views about the historical and patterned principles of justice, liberalism and self-ownership, rights, freedom, entitlement, the two kinds of "arbitrary", and utopia.
