Reader Reviews

Praise

"No contemporary philosopher possesses a more imaginative mind, broader interests, or greater dialectical abilities than Robert Nozick."
Harper's
"Complex, sophisticated and ingenious."
The Economist
"[Nozick's] powers of argument are profound, and his insights are at times staggering in their brilliance."
New Republic
"A major event in contemporary political philosophy...[Nozick] is always stimulating; an open-minded study of what he has to say could be a healthy tonic for romantic leftists."
Peter Singer, New York Review of Books
