Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) is a major figure in Western Philosophy and is one of the most widely read and studied political philosophers of all time. His writings range from abstract works such as On the Social Contract to literary masterpieces such as The Reveries of the Solitary Walker as well as immensely popular novels and operas.

The Rousseauian Mind provides a comprehensive survey of his work, not only placing it in its historical context but also exploring its contemporary significance. Comprising over forty chapters by a team of international contributors the Handbook covers:

    • The predecessors and contemporaries to Rousseau's work

    • The major texts of the 'system'

    • Autobiographical texts including Confessions, Reveries of the Solitary Walker and Dialogues

    • Rousseau's political science

    • The successors to Rousseau's work

    • Rousseau applied today.

    Essential reading for students and researchers in philosophy, Rousseau's work is central to the study of political philosophy, the Enlightenment, French studies, the history of philosophy and political theory.

    'At last a collection of essays as wide-ranging as the mind of Rousseau. In forty-four chapters, it covers his predecessors, contemporaries, and successors; his theoretical, autobiographical and even musical writings. A most useful companion for the scholar and student alike.'

    Arthur Melzer, Michigan State University, USA

    'Students and other informed readers will find here clear, carefully-argued articles presenting Rousseau's texts and offering an overview of the writer's relations with predecessors and contemporaries. Modern interpretations are fully and judiciously presented. The book is fresh, up to date and comprehensive.'

    Michael O' Dea, University of Lyon, France

    Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
