The theory of property proposed by David Hume can be interpreted as an application of the theory developed in this book. The tension between instrumental and moral aspects of property can be traced to principles of clarity. Hume's theory is outlined, discussed from an ethological perspective, and related to the theory of property rights. The tension between ‘moral’ and ‘instrumental’ aspects of property is particularly pronounced in long‐term contracts.
