The Examined Life is a 1989 collection of philosophical meditations by Robert Nozick. An attempt to "tackle human nature, the personal, 'the holiness of everyday life' and its meaning", it has been described as "disappointingly schmaltzy." The work, which proposes some form of inheritance taxation, expresses Nozick's concerns with libertarianism.
