It is argued that a change in the prevailing theory of production is also influencing
how contracts, especially in construction, are being conceived. It is contended that the
theoretical shift in question, both in production and contracting, concerns the metaphysical
presuppositions of respective theories. This claim is further justified through a critical analysis
of how risks and collaboration between parties are considered in conventional contracting.
