Jean-Jacques Rousseau: Transparency and Obstruction

by Jean Starobinski
     
 
This book is not a biography, although in overall outline it tries to follow the chronological development of Rousseau's attitudes and ideas. Neither is it a systematic exposition of the philosophy of the citizen of Geneva, although crucial aspects of that philosophy do come in for detailed examination.
