On the social contract, with Geneva manuscript and Political economy by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( Book )
2,130 editions published between 1762 and 2017 in 24 languages and held by 10,394 libraries worldwide
'Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains.' These are the famous opening words of a treatise that has not ceased to stir vigorous debate since its first publication in 1762. Rejecting the view that anyone has a natural right to wield authority over others, Rousseau argues instead for a pact, or 'social contract', that should exist between all the citizen's of a state and that should be the source of sovereign power. From this fundamental premise, he goes on to consider issues of liberty and law, freedom and justice, arriving at a view of society that has seemed to some a blueprint for totalitarianism, to others a declaration of democratic principles. In his introduction, Maurice Cranston examines the historical and political ideas that influenced Rousseau, and places this book against a backdrop of his remarkable personality and life. -- Publishers description
Emile by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( Book )
428 editions published between 1782 and 2017 in 18 languages and held by 3,241 libraries worldwide
"In his pioneering treatise on education the great French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) presents concepts that had a significant influence on the development of pedagogy in the eighteenth century, and yet many of his ideas still sound radical today. Written in reaction to the stultifying system of rote learning and memorization prevalent throughout Europe at the time, Emile is a utopian vision of child-centered education, full of the sentiments of Romanticism, a movement that Rousseau inspired." "Imagining a typical boy named Emile, Rousseau creates an ideal model of one-on-one tutelage from infancy to manhood with himself as the child's mentor. As in so many of his other famous works, here, too, Rousseau asserts his main thesis that human beings are by nature good; it is only the distorting influences of civilization that have corrupted them." "Educators as well as students of philosophy will find much to admire in Rousseau's still fresh and innovative ideas."--Jacket

These hours of solitude and meditation are the only time of the day when I am completely myself'Reveries of the Solitary Walker is Rousseau's last great work, the product of his final years of exile from the society that condemned his political and religious views. Returning to Paris the philosopher determines to keep a faithful record of the thoughts and ideas that come to him on his perambulations. Part reminiscence, part reflection, enlivened by anecdote and encounters, the Reveries form a kind of sequel to his Confessions, but they are more introspectiveand less defensive: Rousseau finds h

Emile : or, On education by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( Book )
21 editions published between 1762 and 2012 in English and held by 1,147 libraries worldwide
Alan Bloom's new translation of Emile, Rousseau's masterpiece on the education and training of the young, is the first in more than seventy years. In it, Bloom, whose magnificent translation of Plato's Republic has been universally hailed as a virtual rediscovery of that timeless text, again brings together the translator's gift for journeying between two languages and cultures and the philosopher's perception of the true meaning and significance of the issues being examined in the work. The result is a clear, readable, and highly engrossing text that at the same time offers a wholly new sense of the importance and relevance of Rousseau's thought to us. In addition to his translation, Bloom provides a brilliant introduction that relates the structure and themes of the book to the vital preoccupation's of our own age, particularly in the field of education, but also more generally to the current concerns about the limits and possibilities of human nature. Thus in this translation Emile, long a classic in the history of Western thought and educational theory, becomes something more: a prescription, fresh and dazzling, for the bringing up of autonomous, responsible--that is, truly democratic--human beings

"Contained within this volume are two discourses by Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

These two works lay a solid foundation for the political philosophy of Rousseau and are a must read for any student of political science or philosophy."--Back cover

This book is intended as an equivalent to or substitute for that ""more reflective reading"" which Rousseau considered essential to an understanding of his ideas. It is designed to complement perusal of the texts themselves, and the arrangement is such that chapters on each of Rousseau's major writings can be consulted separately or the commentary may be read through in sequence. The author's purpose is not to present a ""key"" to Rousseau's political philosophy, but rather to explore the works themselves in an effort to reveal Rousseau's ""system, "" from which the reader may then draw his ow
