This introductory chapter situates the question about the nature of private law and the philosophical responses to it by doing two things. First, and somewhat predictably, by attempting to define key terms. It clarifies the meaning of ‘philosophy’ and then elucidates the meaning of ‘private law’. It then sketches the contours of contemporary philosophy of private law and the structure of the book.
