Contract Law Without Foundations

Toward a Republican Theory of Contract Law

Prince Saprai

  • Proposes a republican theory of contract law by re-interpreting key contractual doctrines relating to contract formation, vitiation, and remedies
  • Allows students and practitioners to engage with current philosophical thinking about contract law and how it impacts existing doctrine
  • Argues that a field such as contract law can only be explained and justified by the interaction of a multiplicity of moral values
  • Connects contract law theory to current debates about the emergence of transnational contract law
