The Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau

4.89

The Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, published in hundreds of editions and translated into virtually every modern language has not been out of print since 1782.

JEAN-JACQUES ROUSSEAU (1712-1778), was a Swiss philosopher, composer, and author who transformed the art of fiction. His novel, Julie, or the New Heloise, was vital to the development of romantic fiction. Rousseau’s Social Contract is a key document in modern political and social thought, and makes the case for democratic government and social liberation. His widely distributed (banned) political writings helped lead to the French Revolution. The Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau has become one of the most widely read and influential autobiographies ever written.
