(1 Ratings)
Price: $10.03
Rousseau was one of the leading figures in the so-called 'Romantic Reaction' which followed the 'Age of Enlightenment'. Rousseau’s works bear all the marks of an intensely emotional faith in the truth of the principles which he advocates. This characteristic made his writings highly elective as propaganda, although they are without the careful logic of the rationalists. Thus, it is generally agreed that the central theme of Rousseau's Social Contract - man's loss of his natural liberties in the modern state played no small part in fanning the flames of discontent which culminated in the French Revolution. Rousseau argues that the social contract provides the solution to this fundamental problem. By this he means that a society founded upon a social contract, will provide its members with both the freedom of the state of nature and the advantages of civil law and order.
