              Jean-Jacques Rousseau is among the leading political philosophers of the Enlightenment. He sought to ground his political theory in an understanding of human nature, which he believed to be basically good. Here self-interest degenerated into a state of war from which humanity cou...ld only be extricated by the imposition of a contract.

              'Man is born free, yet everywhere he in chains.' The famous opening of Rousseau's On the Social Contract has resonated across the centuries.

This new edition of On the Social Contract is a revised and updated version of the classic Cole translation presented in modern English.

              Dans Du contrat social, Rousseau Ztablit qu une organisation sociale juste repose sur un pacte garantissant l ZgalitZ et la libertZ entre tous les citoyens. Ce pacte est contractZ entre tous les participants, c est-^-dire l ensemble exhaustif des citoyens. Dans le pacte social, c...hacun renonce ^ sa libertZ naturelle pour gagner une libertZ civile. La souverainetZ populaire est le principe fondamental du contrat social. L indivisibilitZ de cette souverainetZ est un autre principe fondamental, par lequel il faut comprendre que le pouvoir du Souverain ne saurait tre divisZ (Rousseau emploie ce terme pour dZsigner le peuple souverain) et il ne peut s en sZparer par intZr t particulier, car l intZr t particulier est contraire ^ la recherche de l intZr t gZnZral, seul objectif du contrat social. Ce contrat social, Rousseau le voit comme faisant suite ^ l Ztat de nature dans lequel r gne le droit du plus fort.

              Emile, or On Education, examines the nature of education and of man, instructing the reader on how to raise a child to live a harmonious, philosophically rich life. Written in an order of the child's upbringing, each part of the text discusses how best to teach a young person val...ues which they can take onward to their ultimate benefit. The titular 'Emile' is the name of child who undergoes the tutoring. In praising the ideas of earlier thinkers, Rousseau compliments physical education and honing of intellect, emphasizing that the child must not learn simply from books, but also from venturing out and experiencing the tangible world and reality before them. One part of the text is notable for what were then considered stark criticisms of religion and philosophy. As a result, Emile was banned in France and elsewhere at the time of publication. The famously derisive Voltaire condemned most of the book, but praised the portion which resulted in its banning - Profession of Faith of the Savoyard Vicar.

              The Social Contract
                

              The Social Contract (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Rousseau's classic treatise of political philosophy espouses ideas and reforms radical for their time. The Social Contract explores the conflict between a society devoted to a prospering and healthy community, and the interests of commercial enterprise. The thoughtful analysis of... society, which at the time was on the cusp of beginning the industrial revolution, and crucially Rousseau's rejection of the monarch's principle of the Divine Right, led to the document becoming an inspiration for the French Revolution. Rousseau argued for personal freedoms and a community where every member has a say. He was vigorously against slavery, and the subjugation of populations brought under the sway of a state. Instead, Rousseau proposed a system whereby the state represents and serves the best interest of its population, to the enrichment and betterment of the general society - it is this principle which encapsulates the philosophy espoused in The Social Contract.
