A sketch of the basic contours of tort law, for those not familiar with it. The chapter defends and starts deepening the traditional case that tort is private law: that what matters in a tort action is simply the claim that one party has wronged another, not making sound social policy or promoting Kaldor-Hicks efficiency or anything like that. It explores settings in which the law does take posthumous interests seriously.
