What People are Saying About This

Harvey Mansfield

“[The Rousseau series is] indispensable to Rousseau scholars and students of political theory. Now that we have it, we realize we cannot do without it. Its scholarship is a model, a monument, and a treasury.”

Peter G. Stillman

“An excellent translation—literal, faithful to Rousseau’s French, lucid, and literate—that is long overdue. The Dialogues stands by itself as an important text and is a fitting initial volume in the Collected Writings.”
