Fundamentals of Law and Economics
The slides are updated during the course. You can download here a provisional version:
The course examines the moving intersection between law and
economics from an analytical and from an historical point of view.
The goals of the course: When seeking to become independent from theology and
moral philosophy, Law and economics developed separate foundations. Recently, the
intersection between law and economics is one of the most vivacious fields, which is
greatly enriching both disciplines. The goal of the course is to clarify both the early
separate foundations of law and economics and the recent attempts to blend them in one
discipline. Some of their fundamentals can usefully emerge from this comparison.
