The Social Contract and Discourses by Jean Jacques Rousseau
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Inspired by ancient Greek city states, Rousseau searched for a way which states of his day could be equally representative" Holding men in wretched subservience, feudalism alongside religion was a powerful force in the eighteenth century. Self-serving monarchic social systems, which collectively reduced common people to servitude, were now attacked by Enlightenment philosophers, of whom Rouseau was a leading light. His masterpiece, "The Social Contract," profoundly influenced the subsequent development of society and remains provocative in a modern age of continuing widespread vested interest. "This is the most comprehensive paperback edition available, with introduction, notes, index and chronology of Rousseau's life and times."
