Abstract

Proposes the following research agenda: (a) understanding the relation between property and long-term economic change by focusing on the relation between property law and what historians call "social property" relations; (b) understanding property concepts and ideas in the context of the larger ideological and philosophical ideas that shaped the immediate world of jurists and property lawyers; (c) looking beyond the single, contingent episodes of the history of property law and identifying longterm patterns and regularities in the way jurists conceptualized property; and (d) understanding European property culture in its many entanglements with the non-European world.
