9780521570046: Rousseau and Geneva: From the First Discourse to The Social Contract, 1749-1762 (Ideas in Context)

Rousseau and Geneva reconstructs the main aspects of Genevan political and religious thought in the first half of the eighteenth century. In this way Dr. Rosenblatt contextualizes the development of Rousseau's thought from the First Discourse through to the Social Contract. Over time Rousseau has been adopted as a French thinker, but Dr. Rosenblatt points out that he is, in fact, a Genevan thinker and explains that it was his relationship with Geneva that played an integral part in his development into an original political thinker.

Review:

"Helena Rosenblatt has given us a more sure picture of Rousseau.... Many...of the discrepencies in his writings are dispelled....Rosenblatt's best contribution is her careful examination of the political debates over constitution and natural law theory." History: Review of Books

"Themes and concerns typically associated with Rousseau's political thought are echoed and refracted in fascinating ways, in the historical context that Rosenblatt so ably brings back to life." Julia Simon, American Historical Review

"...Rosenblatt's book makes a valuable contribution to Rousseau scholarship and deserves to be read by all those who seek a fuller understanding of Rousseau as a political theorist and an active participant in Genevan poltics." Barry Wilkins, Philosophy in Review

"Roussesu and Geneva will have to be read by all Rousseau scholars, and it will provide to students one of the most lucid and scholarly introductions to Rousseau's political thought." Daniel Gordon, Journal of Modern History

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Rousseau and Geneva reconstructs the main aspects of Genevan socio-economic, political and religious thought in the first half of the eighteenth century. In this way Dr Rosenblatt effectively contextualizes the development of Rousseau s thought from the First Discourse through to the Social Contract. Over time Rousseau has been adopted as a French thinker, but this adoption obscures his Genevan origin. Dr Rosenblatt points out that he is, in fact, a Genevan thinker and illustrates that Rousseau s classical republicanism, his version of natural law theory, his civil religion and his hostility to the arguments of doux commerce theorists are all responses to the political use of such arguments in Geneva. The author also points out that it was this relationship with Geneva that played an integral part in his development into an original political thinker. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780521570046
