Corporate Entity: A Legal and Ontological Study

Goal: This is an unpublished law school student paper I wrote for Joseph Vining for law school independent research credit in 1996, after taking his enterprise organization course at the University of Michigan School of Law. I edited it for my Web site in 2007. The topic is whether corporations are entities. It is an interdisciplinary survey of legal and philosophical research. The intended audience is philosophical, and I do not presuppose knowledge of corporation law in my readers. Following a dialectical approach, I first critically review the works of others, notably Joseph Vining, Michael J. Phillips, John Dewey, Sanford A. Schane, Igor N. Grazin, Evan Fales, and John Biro. Then I argue for my own theory in light of the virtues and defects of their theories.
