Abstract from

The Absent Discussion in Australian Corporations Law

David Wishart

Deep within corporations law are inscribed highly contestable presuppositions about the nature of society, the place of the individual within it and the ideals by which we should live. Yet these presuppositions are little, if ever, discussed in the translation of policies into law, and the writings of academics for students and for more general discussion. This remarkable lacuna in the processes and study of corporations law is the subject of this review essay. It is, then, a review of what is absent; in so doing it is hoped that what there is and what is happening may be better described.
