In this paper I discuss the Principles of European Contract Law which were recently published by the Lando commission. I do this by addressing some of the choices the Lando commission made when drafting their Principles. In particular I examine choices with regard to the purpose of the PECL, the authors and their working method, the format and style, the subject matter, politics, culture, economics, and progress v. tradition. In assessing these choices I try to provide a deconstruction of the PECL as a restatement of the common core of European contract law.
