Marie-Pierre Frondziak, Laura Acquaviva
Why are men, who need each other so much, always in opposition? This introduction to Rousseau's thought, based on his four major works: Discourse on the Sciences and the Arts, Discourse on Inequality, On the Social Contract and Emile, allows us to understand how this character against the current of his time is a precursor. Rousseau is one of the few thinkers of his time to denounce the idea of progress, the source of human corruption. For him, it is a question of rethinking political society and changing it, with the aim of human emancipation from all powers.
