AUTHOR

Rousseau, Jean-Jacques, Cole, G. D. H.

SUMMARY

With the publication of The Social Contract in 1761, Jean-Jacques Rousseau took his place among the leading political philosophers of the Enlightenment. Like his contractarian predecessors (Thomas Hobbes and John Locke), Rousseau sought to ground his political theory in an understanding of human nature, which he believed to be basically good but corrupted by the conflicting interests within society. Here self-interest degenerated into a state of war from which humanity could only be extricated by the imposition of a contract. As a party to the compact, each individual would find his true interest served within the political expression of the community of man, or the "general will."Rousseau, Jean-Jacques is the author of 'Social Contract' with ISBN 9780879754440 and ISBN 0879754443.
