This article argues that rescission of a contract and restitution of what passed under it are best viewed as two distinct operations.

This article argues that there is an alternative and hitherto unarticulated defence of necessity latent in the case law which could be a defence to murder: if a group of two or more people are virtually certain to suffer death imminently and together, from the same cause, but one or more could be saved only by killing a particular person in that group, then such killing would be lawful. If all life is otherwise going to be lost anyway, it is better to save at least some of that life.

For most people it is obvious that killing is wrong. It is harder to explain why killing is wrong. The purpose of this article is to present a Buddhist answer. Killing is wrong because of the harm it causes to the killer. As the explanation unfolds, we shall also consider other views for why killing is wrong, to show how a Buddhist approach interacts with them. In particular, we shall consider the claims that death is an intrinsic evil, and that killing harms the victim.
