The Confessions of J. J. Rousseau — Complete

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Among the notable books of later times-we may say, without exaggeration, of all time—must be reckoned The Confessions of Jean Jacques Rousseau. It deals with leading personages and transactions of a momentous epoch, when absolutism and feudalism were rallying for their last struggle against the modern spirit, chiefly represented by Voltaire, the Encyclopedists, and Rousseau himself—a struggle to which, after many fierce intestine quarrels and sanguinary wars throughout Europe and America, has succeeded the prevalence of those more tolerant and rational principles by which the statesmen of our own day are actuated.

Customer Reviews

A unique book

Rousseau wrote this autobiography in late middle age, with the goal of revealing all his faults and sins included among his life events. He does so unsparingly and to great effect. A unique view into the experience and world of an18th century iconoclast.

Great book

A good read! It may require the expansion of your vocabulary, but is by no means littered with jargon. 👍👍👍
