The Introduction puts the contents of the book into perspective, summarizes its aims, and gives an overview of the argument. The relative neglect of the topic of economics in legal, especially judicial, reasoning stems from the opposition of two argumentative styles in modern economics and in ordinary adjudication. Despite their differences, the commonalities between legal and economic reasoning constitute the stepping stone for investigating the role of economics in legal reasoning.
