Jean-Jacques Rousseau was a Genevan philosopher of the 18th century, whose works influenced the Enlightenment across Europe, changing the development of modern political and educational thought. His ‘Confessions’, setting the groundwork for the modern autobiography, inspired the late eighteenth century movement of the Age of Sensibility, favouring an increased focus on subjectivity and introspection. This comprehensive eBook presents Rousseau’s collected works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
