Definition historical principle/Nozick: in order to understand whether a given distribution of goods is fair or unfair, we have to ask how the distribution came about. We need to know its history. Are the parties entitled to ownership as a result of originally justified acquisition?
Definition two-disc principles/Nozick: consider only the current situations and do not ask about the realization.
