About the Author

David Owen is Byrnes Scholar and Professor of Tort Law at the University of South Carolina. He is best known for his co-authorship of Prosser and Keeton on Torts and Products Liability and Safety, and he is currently working on additional books concerning the law of torts and products liability.


Whether one thinks of torts in functional or moral terms, or takes a philosophical or instrumental approach to its subject matter, the essays contained in this volume will provide food for thought for years to come.-- Richard A. Epstein, University of Chicago
Anyone interested in ideas of responsibility, in the connection of theory and practice, and in the relationship of law and moral philosophy will want to ponder the contents of this volume.--Ernest J. Weinrib, University of Toronto
This well-organized volume of essays testifies to an academic school's coming of age. In a generation, English-speaking scholars have generated a literature on the foundations of tort law that is unique in legal history. This introduction to the field invites readers to join the ongoing debates
between philosophers and the economists and between those who believe in the neutrality of justice and those who assert the inevitably partisan nature of law.--George P. Fletcher, Columbia University
