§4.1. Introduction. The 1961 Annual Suroey of American Law pointed to the Uniform Commercial Code as the most significant development in the law of contracts during recent years. This statute, with its many provisions affecting the rules of offer and acceptance, consideration, unconscionable agreements and other aspects of the contractual relationship, will undoubtedly have a substantial effect upon traditional contract concepts. At the very least, there has been a shift from the Willistonian rigidity to Llewellynian flexibility in contracts involving the sale of personal property. Furthermore, with the natural tendency of some courts to reason by analogy and apply the theme of a statute to situations not technically within its scope, the Code may well have a profound influence upon the supposedly unitary concepts which are thought to run whenever a contract is in question.
