Philosophical Foundations of Contract Law

Edited by Gregory Klass, George Letsas and Prince Saprai

18 December 2014

In recent years there has been a revival of interest in the philosophical study of contract law. In 1981 Charles Fried claimed that contract law is based on the philosophy of promise and this has generated what is today known as ‘the contract and promise debate’.

Cutting to the heart of contemporary discussions, this volume brings together leading philosophers, legal theorists, and contract lawyers to debate the philosophical foundations of this area of law.
