9781848312128: Introducing Rousseau: A Graphic Guide

Musician, poet, novelist and botanist, but above all, a philosopher who denied being one, Jean-Jacques Rousseau was the first to ask: What is the value of civilization?” His answer shocked Enlightenment contemporaries and still challenges us today. Introducing Rousseau guides us through a turbulent life of lost innocence, persecution, and paranoia.
