"The Cambridge Companion to Rousseau is an expected and welcome addition to the Cambridge series on philosophers.... It takes good advantage of the possibilities a collection offers to bring diversity to the study of Rousseau. This volume also squarely addresses Rousseau in the context of other historical thinkers." Philosophy in Review
Rousseau, the great political theorist and philosopher of education, was an important forerunner of the French Revolution, though his thought was too nuanced and subtle ever to serve as mere ideology. This is the only volume that systematically surveys the full range of Rousseau's activities in politics and education, psychology, anthropology, religion, music, and theater. New readers will find this the most convenient and accessible guide to Rousseau currently available, while advanced students and specialists will find a conspectus of recent developments in the interpretation of Rousseau.
