As acceptance of such contracts is by an action, which could occur without reference to the offer, the fundamental question must be considered as to whether an acceptance can take place without subjective knowledge or intention. However, the rules which should be applied in principle in implementing an objective approach to such contracts will be considered. They will be seen to be restrictive of when a contract will be found and it will be contended that the objective line can therefore be maintained.
