Further Nozickian Puzzles

Time out! We need to attend to some other time-consuming (and time-sensitive) matters this weekend, so before we proceed with our review of Chapter 4 of Anarchy, State, and Utopia, we wish to pose some additional questions regarding Nozick’s major premise “individual have rights”:

  • Who counts as an “individual” in Nozick’s moral universe? For example, do non-human animals have natural rights? What about artificial entities like corporations? What about unborn children? What about gametes?
  • Do deities (like the Biblical god Jehova, the Inca god Inti, the Greek god Zeus, etc.) have natural rights?
  • Are natural rights (or some subset of our rights) alienable?
