Nozick: Justice as Entitlement Within three yea Robert Nozick, Rawls's colleague at Harvard, published Anarchy, State, and Utopia. o Nozick is critical of Rawls's egalitarianism and presents his so-called "entitlement theory of justice" as an alternative that emphasizes individual rights and liberty o For Nozick, justice is not about agreeing fair principles by imagining that we don't know how lucky or unlucky we have been in the natural or social lottery. o It is about respecting people's right to self-ownership and their right to hold property, leaving them free to decide for themselves what they do with what is theirs.
Understanding Nozick o Nozick is a 'right liberal' (or 'libertarian'), committed to the idea of self-ownership and arguing for a laissez-faire 'nightwatchman' state. o He identifies three ways in which people can acquire a legitimate property holding (or entitlement): Initial acquisition, voluntary transfer and rectification.
