This chapter aims to trace and describe the historical evolution of the distinctions between: the criminal law and private law as manifested in the law of delict; the law of property and the law of obligations within the private law; the law of delict and the different areas of the law of obligations; and the different areas of the delict itself. In addition to describing the historical evolution of the law of delict by distinguishing it from other laws, the chapter also attempts to make observations of the function of delict as seen in the historical change of the taxonomy of this area of the law.

Keywords:   criminal law, private law, law of delict, property, obligations, delict, function of delict
