Description - The Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau by Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Widely considered the first modern autobiography, the Confessions influenced memoirs, fiction, poetry, and philosophy in addition to establishing the author as a leader of the Romantic movement. Rousseau's focus on childhood experiences anticipated Freudian psychology, and his opposition to inequality and emphasis on individual worth constituted a major contribution to progressive social and political thought.
