the silencing of nozick
Conversation with a "philosopher":
What are you teaching this term?
Oh, what are you teaching?
The first half of the term is Rawls, the second half contemporary critiques of liberalism.
That sounds great—are you teaching Nozick at all?
No, I find when you teach Nozick, students just accept his criticisms and can't take Rawls seriously any more . . . .
