The Social Contract by Jean-Jacques Rousseau

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Social Contract For the study of the great writers and thinkers of the past historical imagination is the first necessity Without mentally referring to the environment in which they lived we cannot hope to penetrate below the inessential and temporary to the absolute and permanent value of their thought Theory no less than action is subject to these necessities the form in which men cast their speculations no less than the ways in which they behave are the result of the habits of thought and action which they find around them Great men make indeed individual contributions to the knowledge of their times but they can never transcend the age in which they live The questions they try to answer will always be those their contemporaries are asking their statement of fundamental problems will always be relative to the traditional statements that have been handed down to them When they are stating what is most startlingly new they will be most likely to put it in an old fashioned form and to use the inadequate ideas and formulae of tradition to express the deeper truths towards which they are feeling their way They will be most the children of their age when they are rising most above it

Alan Bloom s new translation of i Emile i Rousseau s masterpiece on the education and training of the young is the first in more than seventy years In it Bloom whose magnificent translation of i Plato s Republic i has been universally hailed as a virtual rediscovery of that timeless text again brings together the translator s gift for journeying between two languages and cultures and the philosopher s perception of the true meaning and significance of the issues being examined in the work The result is a clear readable and highly engrossing text that at the same time offers a wholly new sense of the importance and relevance of Rousseau s thought to us In addition to his translation Bloom provides a brilliant introduction that relates the structure and themes of the book to the vital preoccupation s of our own age particularly in the field of education but also more generally to the current concerns about the limits and possibilities of human nature Thus in this translation i Emile i long a classic in the history of Western thought and educational theory becomes something more a prescription fresh and dazzling for the bringing up of autonomous responsible that is truly democratic human beings, The struggle between Rousseau s yearning for solitude and his need for society is the central theme of the i Reveries i br br In the two years before his death in Jean Jacques Rousseau composed the ten meditations of i Reveries of the Solitary Walker i Combining philosophical argument with amusing anecdotes and lyrical desriptive passages they record the great French writer s sense of isolation and alienation from a world which he felt had rejected his work As he wanders around Paris gazing at plants and day dreaming Rousseau looks back over his life in order to justify his actions and to elaborate on his ideal of a well structured society fit for the noble and solitary natural man, i The Confessions i is Jean Jacques Rousseau s autobiography Covering his first years up to it was completed in but unpublished until four years after his death even though he read excerpts of the manuscript publicly at various times br br i The Confessions i were two distinct works of six books apiece Books I VI were written between amp amp published in books VII XII were written in amp published in Rousseau alludes to a third part but it wasn t completed Though the book is flawed dates are frequently off some events out of order he provides an account of the experiences shaping his influential philosophy For instance the parts of his own education he liked best are clearly present in his account of ideal education Emile or On Education br br Rousseau s work is notable as one of the first major autobiographies Prior to his i Confessions i the two great autobiographies were Augustine s amp St Teresa s Both of these works focused on religious experiences i The Confessions i was one of the first autobiographies in which someone wrote of his own life mainly in terms of his worldly experiences amp feelings, If humans are benevolent by nature how do societies become corrupt And how do governments founded upon the defense of individual rights degenerate into tyranny These are the questions addressed by Jean Jacques Rousseau s i Discourse on the Origin of Inequality i a strikingly original inquiry into much explored issues of th century and subsequent philosophy human nature and the best form of government br br Rousseau takes an innovative approach by introducing a hypothetical history that presents a theoretical view of people in a pre social condition and the ensuing effects of civilization In his sweeping account of humanity s social and political development the author develops a theory of human evolution that prefigures Darwinian thought and encompasses aspects of ethics sociology and epistemology He concludes that people are inevitably corrupt as a result of both natural or physical inequalities and moral or political inequalities br br One of the most influential works of the Enlightenment the i Discourse on the Origin of Inequality i offers a thought provoking account of society s origins and a keen criticism of unequal modern political institutions
