Corrective Justice

Corrective Justice

(p.268) 8 Corrective Justice
Philosophy of Private Law


Oxford University Press

This chapter elucidates and evaluates three matters that any corrective justice account of the normative foundation of private law must address. The first two matters raise the key issues identified in the last chapter, since they concern the adequacy with which each account plays the role of normative foundation and the nature of the obligation to correct. The third matter is, however, more specific. It examines what both Weinrib and Coleman have to say about the relationship between corrective and distributive justice.

Keywords:   private law, normative foundations, corrective justice, distributive justice, Weinrib and Coleman
