9781596980822: The Social Contract: Or Principles of Political Right (Skeptical Reader)

Social Contract takes up an argument which had begun with Bodin and Hobbes, and been continued by Grotius, Spinoza, and Locke to form the foundation of political thinking in the eighteenth century.

The Social Contract is a work of consummate rhetorical skill; but it is also a prolonged sleight of hand in which what is most questionable is carefully hidden behind the magnificent flourishes of the prose.

About the Author:

Roger Scruton is a writer, philosopher, and public commentator who specializes in political and cultural thought. His insights on Rousseau's Social Contract are excellent spurs to further thought and debate. Scruton, who was educated at Cambridge, has published more than 30 books. He frequently engages in political debates and is well known as a powerful polemicist.

Review:

Great Ideas... is the right name for these slim, elegant paperbacks... They are written with precision, force, and care. ("The Wall Street Journal") Penguin Books hopes to provide an economical remedy for time-pressed readers in search of intellectual sustenance. ("USA Today")
