Book Description

This book studies a central but hitherto neglected aspect of Rousseau's political thought: the concept of social order and its implications for the ideal society which he envisages. The antithesis between order and disorder is a fundamental theme in Rousseau's work, and the author takes it as the basis for this study.

Format: Paperback
Very consistent work. Provides a nice overview of Rousseau's debt to the republican tradition, as well as a complete analysis of the concept of order in his political work. Could be more synthetic though.
