Rousseau Dictionary by Nicholas Dent Rousseau Dictionary, Paperback (September 1992)

The social, educational and political writings of Jean--Jacques Rousseau have become enormously influential in the 200 years since his death. But the breadth as well as the depth of Rousseaua s achievement -- he was amongst other things a creative writer and musical composer as well as a philosopher -- is not always appreciated.
