Abstract

The author focuses on the work of Louis Josserand, to study a vigourous debate engaged in by a handful of french legal scholars in the first forty years of the 20th century that eventually lead to the recognition of a new form of civil liability in inanimate things. The objective of this entreprise is to enrich our understanding of objective liability.
