Corrective justice is the term given to the relational character of reasoning in private law. The goal of this book is to exhibit how this reasoning works and to portray the centrality to it of a Kantian conception of rights. The book blends theory and doctrine to show that corrective justice, far from being an empty formal category as some have asserted, provides a distinctive approach to controversial issues across the whole range of liability.

Keywords: corrective justice; rights; Kant
