Jean-Jacques Rousseau The Age of Enlightenment profoundly enriched religious and philosophical understanding and continues to influence present-day thinking. Works collected here include masterpieces by David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, as well as religious sermons and moral debates on the issues of the day, such as the slave trade. The Age of Reason saw conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism transformed into one between faith and logic — a debate that continues in the twenty-first century.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau This book is about the difficulty of being a good individual within an inherently corrupting collectivity: society. Emile deals specifically with education, and outlines a system which would allow for human goodness.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau Among the notable books of later times-we may say, without exaggeration, of all time—must be reckoned The Confessions of Jean Jacques Rousseau. It deals with leading personages and transactions of a momentous epoch, when absolutism and feudalism were rallying for their last struggle against the modern spirit, chiefly represented by Voltaire, the Encyclopedists, and Rousseau himself—a struggle to which, after many fierce intestine quarrels and sanguinary wars throughout Europe and America, has succeeded the prevalence of those more tolerant and rational principles by which the statesmen of our own day are actuated.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau The Social Contract, Or Principles of Political Right (1762) by
Jean-Jacques Rousseau, is the book in which Rousseau theorized about social
contracts as the origins of political community i.e. civil society.
Like John Locke, who believed that a government can only be legitimate if it
has been sanctioned by the people in the role of the sovereign, Rousseau claimed
that a perfect society would be controlled by the "general will" of its
populace. While he does not define exactly how this should be accomplished (as
there are many possible ways, each suited to different situations), he suggests
that assemblies be held in which every citizen can assist in determining the
general will. Without this input from the people, there can be no legitimate
government. Importantly, this input cannot come from representatives, but must
be from the people themselves.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Discourse on the Origin of Inequality Among Men, written for the Académie de Dijon's competition in 1754, is an attempt to answer the question "What is the origin of inequality among men, and is it authorized by natural law?"
Jean-Jacques Rousseau The landmark political treatise that refuted the so-called divine right of kings and established the principles of representative government
“Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.”
With these stirring words, Jean-Jacques Rousseau begins The Social Contract—the first shot in a battle of ideas that would set the stage for the American War of Independence and the French Revolution. In the feverish days of the Enlightenment, Rousseau took aim squarely at the all-powerful French monarchy, proclaiming that no despot, no matter how powerful, had the right to terrorize his people. He laid out a plan for a new kind of government—an idea that was radical then, and remains so now.
The Social Contract is a landmark document from a fascinating period in world history and an invaluable guide to the foundations of modern democracy.

Praise for Jean-Jacques Rousseau “[Rousseau] was a radical egalitarian in an age when such thinkers were hard to find.” —Terry Eagleton, author of Reason, Faith, and Revolution
“Rousseau was a genius whose real influence cannot be traced with precision because it pervaded all the thought that followed him.” —Kingsley Martin, author of French Liberal Thought in the Eighteenth Century
Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712–1778) was one of the leading figures of the French Enlightenment. The author of popular novels such as Emile, or On Education (1762), he achieved immortality with the publication of philosophical treatises such as The Social Contract (1762) and A Discourse on Inequality (1754). His ideas would serve as the bedrock for leaders of both the American and French Revolutions.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau Les Confessions de Jean-Jacques Rousseau est une autobiographie publiée à titre posthume. Le titre des Confessions a sans doute été choisi en référence aux Confessions de Saint-Augustin, publiées au IVe siècle après Jésus Christ. Rousseau, qui était protestant, accomplit ainsi un acte sans valeur religieuse à proprement parler, mais doté d’une forte connotation symbolique: celui de l’aveu des pêchés, de la confession. On reproche souvent à Rousseau la prétention extrême présente dans certains extraits des « Confessions » et dissimulée sous une apparente humilité, mais passer outre à la première lecture est nécessaire pour accéder au second niveau de l’œuvre, qui reste un chef d’œuvre de la littérature française. Composé de 12 livres, « Les Confessions » de Rousseau sont considérées comme la première véritable autobiographie. La première partie de l’œuvre (livres i à vi) a été publiée en 1782 et la seconde (livres vii à xii) en 1789. Une édition réalisée par Bibebook
