Overview


This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading. Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Confessions is the first modern autobiography, and arguably the most influential autobiography ever written. What we think of as the "self," our self-sufficient identity, finds its roots in the Confessions. Rousseau's great autobiography speaks to us with a voice that is as relevant today as it was revolutionary and unsettling in the eighteenth century.

Meet the Author


Jean-Jacques Rousseau is, in the view of many, the greatest prose stylist of the eighteenth century. He is also the most significant political theorist of the Enlightenment (of particular note are the Discourse on Inequality and the Social Contract), the greatest theoretician of education (with Emile), and author of eighteenth-century France's most successful novel, Julie or the New Heloïse. He also made important contributions to music, theater, and botany.
