Rousseau, Judge of Jean-Jacques: Dialogues (Collected Writings of Rousseau)

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Language: English

Pages: 312

ISBN: 1611682924

Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub


One of Rousseau’s later and most puzzling works and never before available in English, this neglected autobiographical piece was the product of the philosopher’s old age and sense of persecution. Long viewed simply as evidence of his growing paranoia, it consists of three dialogues between a character named “Rousseau” and one identified only as “Frenchman” who discuss the bad reputation and works of an author named “Jean-Jacques.” Dialogues offers a fascinating retrospective of his literary career.
