The nature of rationality by Robert Nozick( Book )
23 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 2,597 libraries worldwide
Repeatedly and successfully, the celebrated Harvard philosopher Robert Nozick has reached out to a broad audience beyond the confines of his discipline, addressing ethical and social problems that matter to every thoughtful person. Here Nozick continues his search for the connections between philosophy and "ordinary" experience. In the lively and accessible style that his readers have come to expect, he offers a bold theory of rationality, the one characteristic deemed to fix humanity's "specialness." What are principles for? asks Nozick. We could act simply on whim, or maximize our self-interest and recommend that others do the same. As Nozick explores rationality of decision and rationality of belief, he shows how principles actually function in our day-to-day thinking and in our efforts to live peacefully and productively with each other. Throughout, the book combines daring speculations with detailed investigations to portray the nature and status of rationality and the essential role that imagination plays in this singular human aptitude

Philosophical explanations by Robert Nozick( Book )
35 editions published between 1981 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,904 libraries worldwide
In this highly original work, Robert Nozick develops new views on philosophy's central topics and weaves them into a unified philosophical perspective. It is many years since a major work in English has ranged so widely over philosophy's fundamental concerns: the identity of the self, knowledge and skepticism, free will, the question of why there is something rather than nothing, the foundations of ethics, the meaning of life. Writing in a distinctive and personal philosophical voice, Mr. Nozick presents a new mode of philosophizing. In place of the usual semi-coercive philosophical goals of proof, of forcing people to accept conclusions, this book seeks philosophical explanations and understanding, and thereby stays truer to the original motivations for being interested in philosophy. -- Description from http://www.amazon.com (April 11, 2012)

Socratic puzzles by Robert Nozick( Book )
14 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 638 libraries worldwide
Comprising essays and philosophical fictions, classics and new work, the book ranges from Socrates to W. V. Quine, from the implications of an Israeli kibbutz to the flawed arguments of Ayn Rand. Nozick considers the figure of Socrates himself as well as the Socratic method (why is it a method of getting at the truth?). Many of these essays bring classic methods to bear on new questions about choice. How should you choose in a disconcerning situation ("Newcomb's Problem") when your decisions are completely predictable? Why do threats and not offers typically coerce our choices? How do we make moral judgments when we realize that our moral principles have exceptions? Other essays present new approaches to familiar intellectual puzzles, from the stress on simplicity in scientific hypotheses to the tendency of intellectuals to oppose capitalism

Dieses Buch wendet sich gegen den uns immer mehr bedrohenden und wuchernden Moloch Staat. Es enthält eine aufsehenerregende philosophische Herausforderung an die verbreitetsten politischen und sozialen Auffassungen unserer Zeit, sowohl die liberalen, sozialistischen als auch konservativen. "Anarchie, Staat, Utopia" widerspricht der heute vorherrschenden Meinung, daß das Wohl der Menschen nur durch ein Mehr an Staat erreicht werden kann. Der Autor deckt einen Widerspruch unserer Gesellschaft auf, die einerseits soziale Sicherung durch den Staat fordert und andererseits ein Höchstmaß an individueller Freiheit beansprucht. Mit zwingender Logik, gedanklicher Tiefe und außerordentlichem Scharfsinn legt Nozick schonungslos dar, welcher Illusion unsere Gesellschaft erliegt, wenn sie der Maschinerie unseres Staates immer mehr Aufgaben aufbürdet, in der Erwartung, daß nur Bürokratie und Verwaltung in der Lage wären, die Probleme der Menschen zu lösen. Dieser scheinbar unaufhaltsamen Entwicklung stellt Nozick seine These eines Minimalstaates entgegen: Der Staat ist laut Nozick nur gerechtfertigt, wenn er streng auf die Funktion des Schutzes gegen Gewalt, Diebstahl, Betrug und Durchsetzung von Verträgen beschränkt wird. Jedes weitergehende staatliche Eingreifen würde, wie Nozick glänzend darlegt, notwendigerweise die Rechte des einzelnen verletzen. Daraus ergeben sich zwei bemerkenswerte Folgerungen, denen ausführlich nachgegangen wird: >>Der Staat darf seinen Zwangsapparat nicht dazu einsetzen, einige Bürger dazu zu bringen, anderen zu helfen oder jemandem um seines eigenen Wohles oder Schutzes willen etwas zu verbieten
