About this title


This book deals with Rousseau's political philosophy and Rousseau's philosophy of existence via the explanation of Rousseau's attitude towards the philosophical action in itself and its connection with the political, on the one hand, and with the divine, on the other hand. However, in a sense, this book contains much more than this. It can be looked at as an imaginary discussion of Rousseau with other philosophers, Socrates, Plato, the epicurean and stoical philosophers, Hobbes, Locke, Hegel, Wittgenstein, as some other poets, apropos these timeless questions. By the by, Rousseau's philosophical explanation, as his criticism, of the Hobbesian-Lockian liberal world, is mused upon. The relevancy of these issues to our world of academic indifference towards the political, on the one hand, and to our mad-like attempt to accumulate money and to maximize pleasures, instead of finding happiness qua a satisfied situation, on the other hand, is well-marked in this book.

About the Author:

Avi Kujman (1982) is a critical philosopher from Israel. He is the author of An Introduction to Plato's Humanistic Philosophy: Plato's Metaphysical and Political Criticism of Socrates' Philosophy and Action; Poetry and Philosophy: Plato's Spirit and Literary Criticism and John Milton: a Dialogical Discourse on God, Satan and Humanity. He deals with the fundamental questions of philosophy, inter-alia, if philosophy is possible or not, and the political, inter-alia, the connection of politics to the spirit. Besides, he deals with literary criticism, poetry and the art. Currently, he works on "themes of modernity"- three large essays on Locke, Shakespeare and Michelangelo.
