The central contention of Professor Brudner's learned essay on "Hegel and the Crisis of Private Law" is that a limited positive right to the outward embodiment of one's projects can cohere with the transactional nexus between the litigants in corrective justice. Brudner proposes this both as a solution to the crisis of private law and as an interpretation of Hegel. On both counts he is mistaken.
