Rousseau in 90 Minutes by Paul Strathern

Rousseau in 90 Minutes

by Paul Strathern

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
1 Hr. 45 Min.


In Rousseau we encounter a walking ego, naked sensibility. Feeling triumphs over intellectual argument in his works, which are both deeply stirring and deeply inconsistent. Yet while his contemporaries Kant and Hume may have been superior academic philosophers, the sheer power of Rousseauís ideas was unequaled in his time. It was he who encouraged the introduction of both liberty and irrationality into the public domain.

In Rousseau in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Rousseauís life and ideas and explains their influence on manís struggle to understand his existence in the world. The book also includes selections from Rousseauís work, a brief list of suggested readings for those who wish to delve deeper, and chronologies that place Rousseau within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.
