El Contrato Social

El Contrato Social Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the classic works of social contract theory, this detailed proposal concerns the origins of social organization and political community and a persons own role within society. Rousseaus writings had a clearly subversive character, as they rebelled against the European absolute monarchies. According to this political argument, sovereign towns could change their laws and governors at any time, while being able to modify their governmental organization and state constitution.

 

Una obra clásica de la teoría del contrato social, este proyecto detallado tiene que ver con el origen de la organización social y la comunidad política y el papel de una persona en sociedad. Las obras de Rousseau tuvieron un claro carácter subversivo, ya que se rebelaban contra las monarquías absolutas imperantes en Europa. Según este argumento político, el pueblo soberano podía cambiar las leyes o sus gobernantes en cualquier momento y modificar la forma de su organización gubernamental y la de la constitución del estado.
