Get The Unity of the Common Law: Studies in Hegelian PDF

Countering the influential view of serious felony reviews that legislation is an incoherent mix of conflicting political ideologies, this ebook forges a new paradigm for knowing the typical legislation as being unified and systematic. Alan Brudner applies Hegel's felony and ethical philosophy to style a accomplished synthesis of the typical legislation of estate, agreement, tort, and crime.

Sample text

37 Two other bases for liability in negligence for defective premises have, in theory, survived the decision in Murphy v Brentwood, although their application in practice is extremely unlikely. First, Lord Bridge suggested that there may be a duty to prevent economic loss where the defective building is so close to its boundary that by reason of its defects the building might cause physical damage or injury to persons on neighbouring land or the highway. This approach was applied in Morse v Barrett (Leeds) Ltd (1993) 9 Const LJ.

10 If one party evinces an intention not to continue to perform his side of the contract then the other party may again treat the contract as at an end. 11 In all three of the circumstances described above the innocent party has a choice as to whether or not to treat himself as discharged. He may prefer to press for performance of the contract so far as the other party is able to perform it, and to restrict himself to his remedy in damages. But once made, the election cannot unilaterally be changed, unless the matter which gave rise to it is a continuing state of affairs which therefore continues to provide the remedy afresh.

Thus, the dichotomy was resolved in this case by a finding that neither the contractor nor the construction professional should owe a duty of care in the ordinary course of events in respect of defects in quality to the product of their work or services. 44 It is suggested that this approach is probably wrong, as it appears to rest upon the assumption that Murphy v Brentwood is authority for the proposition that a building contractor can never owe his client a duty of care in tort in respect of the quality of his work.
