'The Idea of Contract in Early Modern Europe: Three Thoughts on Stair's Institutions of the Law of Scotland' Abstract: This paper re-examines Stair's famous statement every paction produceth action in light of ius commune literature of the period and argues that Stair's references were specifically included in order to link his views on a general principle of contract with the latest debates in the ius commune on the topic.
