Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Hardback Book


Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) was hailed by Claude Levi-Strauss as "the founder of the sciences of man".

This collection of fourteen classic papers devoted to his work addresses the points of intersection between the moral and the political, the personal and the social.

The volume is divided into five parts: The Critique of Progress and the Speculative Anthropology, The Naturalizing of Natural Law, The General Will and Totalitarianism, Anticipations of Game Theory and Strategies of Redemption.

The articles are accompanied by an extensive, detailed introduction by the editor along with a selective bibliography.
