Product Description


Weinreb continues to build a compelling case that the character and aspirations of private law are best understood as manifestations of a normative ideal that is sensitive to the structure of private law reasoning and liability, and that 'works backward from the doctrines and institutions of private law to the most pervasive abstractions in it' (p.26). In my view it is a wonderful book. (Andrew Botterell, Mind Association)

His latest book - Corrective Justice - is exceptional precisely because Weinrib is deeply informed about legal doctrine. Of course, he also has formidable philosophical skill, and in bringing that to bear on doctrine, he dismantles any thought that corrective justice is too abstract a concept to shed light on the practical problems that courts face. Along the way, he also demolishes the instrumentalism that has recently dominated scholarship about private law. (Scott Hershovitz, Law and Philosophy d)
