Professor at the University of Stirling (United Kingdom), Oles Andriychuk explores and compares the economic, legal and philosophical foundations of the very concept of competition in order to examine its relationship with the various objectives pursued by American antitrust law and European Union competition law (welfare, growth, innovation, etc.) compared with its use in other systems (such as the electoral system). In doing so, the author pleads for the autonomous nature of the concept of competition and thus intends to free it from economic analysis, which too often tends to monopolize and sacralize it, whereas a perspective through legal theory also makes it possible to define its relative nature and its necessary conciliation with other values of society.
