A Discourse on Inequality (Penguin Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most influential of Rousseau's writings, the "Second Discourse" set forth a theory of human evolution that prefigured the discoveries of Darwin, revolutionized the study of anthropology and linguistics, and made a seminal contribution to political and social thought--leading to both the French Revolution and the birth of social science.

Synopsis:

In this text, Rousseau demonstrates how the growth of civilization corrupts man's natural happiness and freedom due to the artificial inequalities of wealth and social privilege.

Synopsis:

New edition, with an introduction by a leading Rousseau scholar.
