Has Nozick Justified the State?

Pacific Philosophical Quarterly 62 (4):411-415 (1981)
In ANARCY, STATE AND UTOPIA Robert Nozick says that the fundamental question of political philosophy, one that precedes questions about how the state should be organized, is whether there should be any state at all. In the first part of his book he attempts to justify the state. We argue that he is not successful.
