* Lecturer in Law, Brunel University. B.Sc. 1985 Western Ontario; LL.B. 1988 Toronto;
D.Phil. 1992 Oxon. The views in this paper have had a long genesis, and many people have at
one time or another commented upon and provided helpful criticisms of their previous incarna-
tions, principally in my Oxford D.Phil. thesis (The Idea of Property in Law, Oxford, 1992) and in a
paper presented at the W.G. Hart Workshop at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies in
London in July, 1993. The author is grateful to Timothy Endicott, Strephan Fauble, James
Harris, Peter Jaffey, Stephen Munzer, Joseph Raz, Bernard Rudden, Steve Sheppard, Jonathan
Sutton, and William Wilson for their comments and criticisms. Responsibility for the infelici-
tous, unfounded, and fallacious remains with the author.
