Example text

The promisor is compelled to improve the promisee’s circumstances, not to repair a loss wrongfully caused. The “normal” measure of contract damages appears anomalous from the standpoint of private law itself. For the same reason, the enforcement of purely executory agreements not relied upon by the promisee is problematic, given that the only basis for enforcement can be protection of the expectation interest. Yet it is precisely the enforceability of such agreements that is regarded as the hallmark of modern contract law.

The classical conception, Atiyah contended, treats the unrelied-on and unpaid-for executory contract, consisting just of mutual promises, as the paradigm of enforceable agreements. One of his objections against this view was that such agreements are, in fact, exceedingly rare. Most enforceable agreements involve the receipt of actual benefits or the inducement of actual reliance either at the moment of formation or very soon thereafter. In addition, Atiyah took the classical view to be in tension with certain 34 contract basic aspects of contract doctrine, such as the objective test of formation (by which parties may be bound irrespective of their intentions), the doctrine of consideration (which stipulates the existence of benefit or detriment as a condition of enforceability), or the mitigation requirement (which seems to be explicable only on the basis of the primacy of the reliance interest).
