Editorial Reviews

Review

Tracy Strong's book is as much an elegant and compelling evocation of Rousseau himself, or of his spirit, as it is a very fine analysis of the books and the ideas. This makes it a critically important achievement, since that spirit or frame of mind has had more to do with whatever common world and unresolved problems we still share than the work of any other modern. This book is an extraordinary acknowledgement of Rousseau and od how Rousseau wanted to be read, and thereby, in a strikingly original and lucid way, helps make available to us the problem of a 'common humanity,' as Rousseau saw it. (Robert B. Pippin, University of Chicago)

In lucid and thoughtful fashion, Tracy Strong directs our vision to Rousseau's analysis of the mysterious character of ordinary life and its meaning for politics. The reader will be delighted and challenged by the vision of Rousseau that Strong presents. Particularly insightful is Strong's discussion of Rousseau's preference for humanity over authority and for self-constituting communities over political impositions by external agency. Rousseau in Strong's hands becomes an important precursor of postmodernity or perhaps even the first postmodern man. This book will thus be of interest not merely to political theorists and philosophers, but to all those engaged with postmodernism in literature and other kindred disciplines. (Michael Allen Gillespie, Duke University)
