"A person who has been unjustly enriched at the expense of another is required to make restitution to the other."' This principle is a pervasive one, running throughout the common law. It is implemented by many remedies, both at law and in equity; and only in recent times has the single idea underlying the several remedies been clearly perceived. The Tennessee cases on Restitution will here be collected according to the remedies involved.
