Abstract

In Anarchy State and Utopia (Basic Books, 1974) Robert Nozick states 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’ (p. 4). In Part I of his book he attempts to justify the state., We argue that he is not successful.
