Robert Nozick (New York, 16 novembre 1938 – Cambridge, 23 gennaio 2002)

Nozick was introduced to libertarian ideas by the anarcho-capitalist/individualist anarchist Murray Rothbard, so Anarchy, State, and Utopia is a rejection of the ideas of Nozick’s mentor, in some respects, and was not well received by Rothbardians, though Nozick mentions Rothbard respectfully in the acknowledgments. On the other hand, Nozick was reacting against his colleague in the Department of Philosophy at Harvard, John Rawls. Rawls was the author of the massively influential A Theory of Justice, which advocates egalitarian principles that might lead to redistribution of income. This is not a necessity in Rawls, and at least some moderate libertarians have argued for taking up Rawls.
