Emileby Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Jean-Jacques Rosseau, P. D. Jimack
Pub. Date: 11/28/1993
Publisher: Everyman Paperback
A clear, readable, and highly engrossing translation of Rousseau's masterpiece on the education and training of the young.... Some of the profound contradictions in Rousseau's life found their way into his political philosophy, which is meant to show the way to freedom and equality but finds true freedom in the submission of the individual to the 'general will.' Rousseau has been seen as both the champion of revolution and individual liberty and the harbinger of 20th-century totalitarianism.
