Social Contract ; and, the Discourses by Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Book Description

Two works in one volume Jean-Jacques Rousseau was the first, and the most eloquent and versatile, of that extraordinary line of radical modern thinkers who aimed their disenchantment at the very roots of the human social order and thereby forever reshaped the way we deal with one another. Of Rousseau s many contributions to the tradition he inaugurated, the one for which he is most revered and that makes these pages glow with conviction is his passionate indignation about anything that trammels individual freedom. This revised edition of G. D. H. Cole s celebrated translation includes an appendix of sections from the first manuscript draft of The Social Contract and the passage in Rousseau s novel Emile in which he summarizes its argument, along with Cole s original preface, which has itself become a classic. Translated by G. D. H. ColeRevised and augmented by J. H. Brumfitt and John C. Hall (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)"
