Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
“This collection, prefaced by Nancy Tuana, is important not only for Rousseau specialists, but everyone interested in the relationship between private and public spaces, the role of women, and the meaning of freedom and identity in democratic societies. The bibliography provides a useful tool for further research on these issues.”
—Felicia B. Sturzer, New Perspectives on the Eighteenth Century
“Whether Rousseau is seen as a phallocratic tyrant, a proto-feminist philosopher, or situated somewhere between the two, the fifteen essays collected in this volume demonstrate not only the richness and diversity of his thought, but also the exciting debates which his writings continue to inspire in the twenty-first century.”
—Jo-Ann McEachern, University of Toronto Quarterly
