Robert Nozick and the Immaculate Conception of the State

Journal of Libertarian Studies 1 (1):45-57 (1977)
Abstract
attempt to justify the State, or at least a minimal State confined to the functions of protection.

Before embarking on a detailed critique of the various Nozickian stages, let us consider several grave fallacies in Nozick’s conception itself, each of which would in itself be sufficient..
