Korte beschrijving

The aim of this research was to trace the advent and early use of the concept of consideration in English contract law, by studying the doctrinal development in parallel with the corresponding terminological evolution between the 15th and 18th centuries. The research adopted a two-track, interdisciplinary approach, which marked out a research field beyond the mere content analysis of the case law and legal writings. On the one hand, the enquiry of the legal historian revealed the historical process of the legal thought that initiated the concept of consideration. On the other hand, the pragmatic and empirical angle of studying the language in its context by the linguist showed how legal thought was encoded in linguistic expressions and meanings. This allowed for a better understanding of the continuous interaction between the way legal thought creates meaning in language and language creates realities in law.
