    Jean-Jacques Rousseau (–) Just as he did in his Discourse on Inequality, Rousseau borrows ideas from the most influential political philosophers of his day, though he often comes to very different conclusions. Jean Jacques Rousseau was a philosopher, author, political theorist and music composer from the then Republic of Geneva, who lived in the 18th century and is credited for inspiring some of the most significant events of the time.

    Rousseaus most significant legacy as a philosopher was his ill-thought out political philosophy, which served to legitimate violent revolution, and totalitarian regimes. This political philosophy does not appear particularly romantic in content, sensibility plays no role in the state. The book brings together superb new translations by renowned Rousseau scholar John T. Scott of three of Rousseau’s works: the Discourse on the Sciences and Arts, the Discourse on the Origin and Foundations of Inequality Among Men, and On the Social two Discourses show Rousseau developing his well-known conception of the natural goodness of man and the .

    The book concludes with James Swenson's "Rousseau, the Revolution, and the Republic," which outlines the republican dimensions of Rousseau's political philosophy, where republicanism is associated less with the general will than with a particular a way of life ().
