The problem is to elucidate the nature of two types of commitments that involve an objective bond, the promise and the vow. The basis for the discussion is an article by Adolf Reinach, “The Apriori Foundations of Civil Law”. Promising and the promise are compared and contrasted with vowing and the vow.
The method used is an attitude of openness to the data which present themselves. The essential characteristics of these entities are examined.
