Stephen Smith on Towards a Theory of Contract

Stephen Smith在SSRN上面發表了一篇文章:Towards a Theory of Contract,這篇文章原載於Oxford Essays in Jurisprudence 4th Series ,因此不算是新的文章。文章分為兩個部分:第一、對於當前的契約法理論進行說明(包含了promissory theories, reliance theories, and transfer theories),第二個他基於promissory theories的立場說明契約法的證成問題:為何契約具有拘束力的並可被執行!這一篇文章雖然長,但不會太困難。對於契約法基礎理論有興趣的人,應該不難閱讀!英美契約法有趣之處也在這裡,這種基礎理論的問題,沒有一直獲得解決,某個意義上讓許多新的理論觀念可以被創造。我自己比較熟悉的是promissory theories、compound rule theory以及empowerment theory。若對於此類基礎理論有興趣的話,我認為Daniel Markovits在SEP上面的簡介是很好的入門(按此閱讀!2015年9月的新詞條!)
