The traditional approach to equity concentrated on the historical development of doctrines and remedies in the English Court of Chancery. This subject takes a different approach to equity. It aims to reveal the philosophical foundations of equitable doctrines and remedies. What goals and purposes do they serve? Are they justified morally and, if so, how?
