The Political Philosophy of Jean-Jacques Rousseau

The Impossibilty of Reason

Mads Qvortrup

Published by Manchester University Press

Presents an overview of Rousseau's work from a political science perspective. Was the great theorist of the French Revolution really a conservative? The text argues that the author of "The Social Contract" was a constitutionalist, closer to Montesquieu and Locke than to revolutionaries.
