Taxation of earnings from labor is on a par with forced labor  (Robert Nozick Quotes) Taxation of earnings from labor is on a par with forced labor. Seizing the results of someone’s labor is equivalent to seizing hours from him and directing him to carry on various activities.  (Robert Nozick Quotes) When I was 15 years old, or 16, I carried around on the streets of Brooklyn a paperback copy of Plato’s Republic, front cover facing outward. I had read only some of it and understood less, but I was excited by it and knew it was something wonderful  (Robert Nozick Quotes) Examples one finds in the philosophical literature are somebody who’s seen the trial of a child of theirs, where they’re being proved guilty of some crime that would drive the parent into a depression, maybe a suicidal depression.  (Robert Nozick Quotes) I think philosophers can do things akin to theoretical scientists, in that, having read about empirical data, they too can think of what hypotheses and theories might account for that data. So there’s a continuity between philosophy and science in that way.  (Robert Nozick Quotes) Only the refusal to listen guarantees one against being ensnared by the truth  (Robert Nozick Quotes) There is room for words on subjects other than last words  (Robert Nozick Quotes) The socialist society would have to forbid capitalist acts between consenting adults  (Robert Nozick Quotes) No state more extensive than the minimal state can be justified  (Robert Nozick Quotes) Whatever arises from a just situation by just steps is itself just  (Robert Nozick Quotes) A distribution is just if it arises from another just distribution by legitimate means  (Robert Nozick Quotes) From each as they choose, to each as they are chosen  (Robert Nozick Quotes) Whatever the practical origins of aesthetic discernment may have been, it has been used to create great works of art. When the very loftiest human creations are seen to derive from humble origins and functions, what needs revision is not our esteem for these creations but our notion of nobility  (Robert Nozick Quotes) There is no social entity with a good that undergoes some sacrifice for its own good. There are only individual people, different individual people, with their own individual lives. Using one of these people for the benefit of others, uses him and benefits the others. Nothing more  (Robert Nozick Quotes) Some people steal from others, or defraud them, or enslave them, seizing their product and preventing them from living as they choose, or forcibly exclude others from competing in exchanges. None of these are permissible modes of transition from one situation to another  (Robert Nozick Quotes) It goes without saying that any persons may attempt to unite kindred spirits, but, whatever their hopes and longings, none have the right to impose their vision of unity upon the rest  (Robert Nozick Quotes) You can’t satisfy everybody; especially if there are those who will be dissatisfied unless not everybody is satisfied  (Robert Nozick Quotes) Justice in holdings is historical; it depends upon what actually has happened. We shall return to this point later  (Robert Nozick Quotes) There is no justifiable prediction about how the hypothesis will hold up in the future; its degree of corroboration simply is a historical statement describing how severely the hypothesis has been tested in the past  (Robert Nozick Quotes) The fact that we don’t keep repeating tests in the same arena is not because the probability of the hypothesis showing its falsity in other arenas goes up after it has passed tests in one arena  (Robert Nozick Quotes) It’s the level that allows us each to live our own chosen lives. But I notice not everyone agrees with the primary importance of that level, and I try to account for how they don’t  (Robert Nozick Quotes) Certainly the emphasis I place in this chapter on coordination of behavior and cooperation to mutual benefit is something that ought to be very congenial to people in the libertarian tradition  (Robert Nozick Quotes) Why are philosophers intent on forcing others to believe things? Is that a nice way to behave towards someone?  (Robert Nozick Quotes) Examples one finds in the philosophical literature are somebody who’s seen the trial of a child of theirs, where they’re being proved guilty of some crime that would drive the parent into a depression, maybe a suicidal depression  (Robert Nozick Quotes) I guess my tendency is to think essentially that the new wrinkles won’t do the job if the old major idea didn’t, and so you have to try something different. Then maybe they can all be combined in some coherent piece  (Robert Nozick Quotes) I think philosophers can do things akin to theoretical scientists, in that, having read about empirical data, they too can think of what hypotheses and theories might account for that data. So there’s a continuity between philosophy and science in that way  (Robert Nozick Quotes) It is, from another angle, an attack on requiring proof in philosophy. And it’s also the case, I guess, that my temperament is to like interesting, new, bold ideas, and to try and generate them  (Robert Nozick Quotes) The scientists often have more unfettered imaginations than current philosophers do. Relativity theory came as a complete surprise to philosophers, and so did quantum mechanics, and so did other things  (Robert Nozick Quotes) Through the evolutionary process, those who are able to engage in social cooperation of various sorts do better in survival and reproduction  (Robert Nozick Quotes) What hadn’t been realized in the literature until now is that merely to describe how severely something has been tested in the past itself embodies inductive assumptions, even as a statement about the past  (Robert Nozick Quotes)
