Here Volume II contains his later writings such as the SOCIAL CONTRACT, which was publicly condemned on publication, sending Rousseau into exile, where he wrote additional autobiographical and political works.

Synopsis:

'Volume two contains the later writings such as The Social Contractand a selection of Rousseau’s letters on important aspects of his thought. The Social Contract was publicly condemned on publication causing Rousseau to flee. In exile he wrote both autobiographical and political works.
