9780099582847: The Essential Writings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau (Vintage Classics)

Translated by Peter Constantine

Edited and with an new introduction by Leo Damrosch

'Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains' is the dramatic opening line of The Social Contract, published in 1762. Quoted by politicians and philosophers alike, the power of this sentence continues to resonate. It laid the groundwork for both the American and French Revolutions, and is considered a foundational text in the development of the modern principles of human rights. Rousseau was an extraordinary visionary and a revolutionary thinker. The Essential Writings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau collects his best and most indispensable work.

The book includes: Discourse on the Origin and Foundations of Inequality Among Men and The Social Contract in full, plus selections from Émile, a treatise on education, the autobiographical Reveries of the Solitary Walker and Julie, or the New Héloïse,an epistolary novel.

Review:

"Not only a radical thinker but also one of Europe's most popular novelists" ( Guardian)

"The 18th century's crankiest sentimental genius" ( Washington Post)

"Rousseau...is one of those paradoxical geniuses who tend to inspire all-forgiving love or intense dislike" ( Independent)

Book Description:

A new translation of Rousseau's key works. A one stop shop for students of french, politics, philosophy and history.
